The Handcuff King in England

I recently subscribed to The British Newspaper Archive, and I'm losing my mind! I'm adding volumes of information about Houdini in the UK my Chronology. I'm also coming across many photographic gems, such as the below. This comes from the February 17, 1904 Tatler magazine. Not much to say except, wow, what a pic!

For the record, Houdini appeared in the UK in 1900, 1901, 1902, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1908, 1909, 1910, 1911, 1913, 1914, and 1920.

Okay, back to work!


  1. Wow! BNA now has The Tatler Magazine. I had a subscription years ago. I believe that is Houdini from 1900.

  2. Wow! Great find, John! Joe is spot on. A young Harry 1900 with a fresh haircut.
