The Superman of Mysticism -- July 17, 2014

Harry Blackstone was a great showman.  He had a long successful career and his son, Blackstone Junior, also became a magician.  Blackstone, Senior inspired a comic book and a radio show, both titled Blackstone, Magic Detective

Blackstone, Senior was known for a big stage show with lots of attractions.  For his appearance at the Seattle Pantages in 1922, each day had a theme.  Children would receive white rabbits at the Saturday matinee.
