Dean has been on fire lately finding vintage Houdini ads and newspaper stores. Check out his lastest post, Houdini's Challenging Time in Trenton, which offers a terrific day by day account of Houdini's performances in Trenton, NJ, in 1912.

One last jab
Not long ago I did a post about Houdini's famous clash with boxing champion Jess Willard at the Los Angeles Orpheum in 1915. Now our friend Dean Carnegie of Carnegie: Magic Detective has uncovered this terrific advert that takes full advantage of the incident. I don't know. Think Houdini might have had something to do with this ad?
