Here's one from yesterday that wasn't an April Fools Day joke. David Saltman shared on his blog The Houdini File four remarkable images of Houdini and Bess performing Metamorphosis. These appeared in the January 5, 1901 issue of the British magazine The Golden Penny. Smaller versions appear in Bruce MacNab's The Metamorphosis: The Apprenticeship of Harry Houdini, but here we get a much better look at Harry and Bess in action.

Click the headline to see these amazing photos at The Houdini File. And, yes, that is the sub trunk once owned by Patrick Culliton (I've been in that box!).

  1. Nice!

    Harry & Bess are both handsomely dressed and looking elegant...A far cry from their "Dime Museum Harry" days!
