Houdini takes the fight to Washington

A nice original photo of Houdini testifying before Congress on May 20, 1926 has sold on eBay for $224.72. One thing I really like about this print are the caption details provided on the back.

Houdini was in Washington to support an amendment to a bill that would curtain Fortune Telling in the District of Columbia. It didn't pass. No doubt because of Tea Party opposition. :p
