The modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster was born when a
sighting makes local news on May 2, 1933. The Scottish newspaper
Inverness Courier relates an account of a local couple who claim to
have seen "an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface”
of Loch Ness, a large freshwater lake near Inverness, Scotland.

Revelations in 1994 that the famous 1934 photo (above) was a
complete hoax has only slightly dampened the enthusiasm of
tourists and investigators for the legendary beast of Loch Ness.

See SWNS story SWJESSE; An eBay fan hit the jackpot when a photograph he picked up on the site for just seven pounds is now said to be worth a whopping two million. Justin Whiting, 45, was astonished when forensic experts confirmed his picture of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James was genuine and could sell for six figures. Single Justin, from Spalding, Lincs, said: “Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few quid, like other people would buy a lottery ticket. “I noticed the picture for sale - it was ten dollars. It was a bit blurry on the site but when I got it, it was a lot clearer.
