Happy birthday Bess

Today is Bess Houdini's 142nd birthday. Bess was born Wilhelmina Beatrice Rahner on January 23, 1876 in Brooklyn, NY. As you can see below, she marked her start in show business as 1894, the year she played Coney Island as part of The Floral Sisters and married Harry. The rest is history.


Below are a few more Bessie birthday posts to enjoy.
