The original Slender Man photos.

One of two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as "The Slender Man". Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence.

1986, photographer: Mary Thomas, missing since June 13th, 1986.

Slenderman is real?

It's remakable how a simple image has given Stirling City so much attention.

I know, right? And everyone likely assumes it is Stirling in California, as opposed to Stirling in Perth Western Australia (which is the original source of this image).

I'm pretty sure it is Stirling in California.

You are correct - The common Slenderman lore is that the photo originated from the city of Stirling, California.
However, I figured that some folks may be curious to know that the original, unedited photo originates from the City of Stirling of Western Australia, circa 1980. 

I posted a link in another comment here, but it seems that the photo is no longer available online.

You, Victor Surge, I would like to thank.
You gave us the true meaning of horror by giving us Slender Man.
