Houdini and Kellar and Thurston, oh my!

Here's a terrific image I've never seen before posted by Ken Trombly on his magic_posters Instagram. Quite the gathering!

It's interesting to note that this was taken just one month before Houdini resigned from the S.A.M. in July 1908, due largely over his feud with Sphinx publisher Dr. A.M. Wilson. The full photo appeared in the June 1908 issue of Houdini's Conjurers Monthly Magazine.

Thanks to Ken for letting me share this image. Visit his website



  1. Anyone else of note in this or the original it was taken from?

    The Houdini Museum, Scranton, PA
    The Only Building in the World Dedicated to Houdini

    1. I was hoping someone might recognize the other folk. I don't.

  2. Great photo! John now has an exact location for HH on 6/4/1908 in his Chronology.
