LINK: Houdini vs. the Success

Richard Norgard has launched a blog devoted to the life and legend of the sailing ship Success. He promises to share his "extensive research, travels, and discoveries, the fruits of his 40-year search for the true history" of the famous convict ship.

One of his first blog entries looks at Houdini's escape from one of the ship's prison cells on June 4, 1913. The photo right, used with Richard's kind permission, appears to be one of the cells in that very block.

Click the headline above to read about this little known challenge escape at The Sailing Ship Success.

Thanks to Kevin Connolly for the tip.
