Andrew Beer, our man in London, who in the past has provided us with wonderful "Then and Now" photos of the Hippodrome, 20 Hanover Sq, and 12 Methley Street, is back today with this fantastic shot of Charing Cross station in London. I love this kind of stuff!
Houdini at Charing Cross in 1909...
...and the same spot today (2013).
Houdini had strong feelings about train travel in England and tips for how to do so economically. Watch for that in an upcoming installment of "The Handcuff King's Blog." Also, that white round container with HOUDINI written on it contains his Milk Can (as we explored here). By the way, the photo of Houdini was taken on Halloween 1909.
