Houdini and Charlie clean up

An original glass negative photograph of Houdini and his dog Charlie (not Bobby as the auction states) sold in a Martinka auction today for $545. While I've seen another photo taken during this same session, this is the first time I've seen this particular shot. (You can see the positive photo on the auction page.)

As always, congratulations to the buyer.

  1. This will teach me to pay attention to auctions. I didn't look at the Martinka Auction until it was over. There were several items I would have bid on, including this picture. Oh well.

    1. I didn't know about this until today. I got a reminder email and that was the first time I saw this pic.
