Hardeen postcard dashes off with $280

This photo postcard of Houdini's brother, Theo Hardeen, sold yesterday on eBay for $280. According to the auction, this was taken during Dash's tour of England circa 1910. It's a great image and one that I've never seen before.

Congrats to the buyer.

  1. Yeah--you don't usually see a photo of Hardeen around this time without manacles on him, or a top hat and cane. It looks similar to a couple of photos of Theo in Christopher's Untold Story. For a postcard, you would think he would be cuffed to advertise his profession.
