Houdini performed with his own vaudeville touring company in Salem from April 16-18, 1906. This was his only appearance in Salem (as far as I know). The building that stands at the site of Houdini's jail break is the original.
Thanks to Erik Bartlett at TheMagicDetective Group for the alert.
I live in the next town and fly home tomorrow. Will go and check this out! Very cool.ReplyDelete
Great. This appears to have just happened so not sure the sign is up yet. But would love to share a photo when it does.Delete
Was about to get super excited as I lived in Salem too. But unfortunately not the one in Mass.ReplyDelete
