Happy Birthday Harry Houdini

 

 

 

 

 

On the date of his 137th birthday I thought I’d post a few interesting things I found in a quick search of the Archive for Harry Houdini:

Here is a description and the actual audio from the final seance to try to contact Houdini:

    I just finished reading Modern Marvels – Viktoriana where Harry Houdini is one of the main characters. Highly recommended and entertaining.
