Houdini imitator gets his wish

Here's one for fans and collectors of Houdini imitators. The Maine Historical Society website has posted this vintage image of an escape artist whom they identify as Houdini in 1908. It's clearly not Houdini, but who is it?

Click here to have a look at the full length photo at Maine Memory Network. You can also purchase a reproduction of the picture from the site. And if you think you know who this fine fellow is, let us know in the comments below.

UPDATE: The site has now updated this photo as "NOT Harry Houdini, ca. 1908".
