On May 2, 1933 the Loch Ness Monster became “known” to the public. A newspaper in Inverness, Scotland reported on a mystery sighting in the largest of the Scottish lochs (it’s a big lake).
While the legend dates back long before that Inverness Courier newspaper article appeared, it was that piece that made Nessie a part of our cultural lexicon.
There have been lots of claims about “finding” the real monster – or at least disproving its existence in the first place. Most notably in 1994 a study said the infamous photo everyone now recognizes, was a fake. But that still hasn’t eliminated the mystery of the big monster living in the Scottish lake.
