Houdini comes to Providence

A nice collection of newspaper clippings from November 1925 advertising Houdini's full evening show at the Providence Opera House in Rhode Island have sold on eBay. I love ephemera like this. Imagine, you could go see 2 1/2 hours of Houdini for .50¢ or $1.50 max. Now if we only had a time machine...

It's also interesting, and poignant, that Houdini would spend his Thanksgiving performing a special matinee. This, of course, was Houdini's last Thanksgiving.
