Magic #4 -- April 2, 2011

Harry Houdini was a pioneer in escapology. He went to cities and invited challenges from jailers and sailors and employees of various businesses. In this ad "HOUDINI ACCEPS" a challenge from the employees of the Bon Marche Store, who will build a packing case. I'd like to see "Fred's Monkey Actors."

The ad is from the 18-September-1907 Los Angeles Herald. Click on the image to see a larger version.
