Of course, what the paper means is Houdini is going to be hung by his ankles in a straitjacket from the Sun building. This is promoting his escape in Baltimore on April 26, 1916. Houdini was pretty deft at suggesting these types of attention grabbers. Click bait 1916 style.
Did he survive? You can find the answer HERE.
Wearing his mourning clothes no less. You can see the black jacket and white striped shirt.ReplyDelete
Indeed! To my eye, this might be the same session from which photos were used to create his grave bust.Delete
Good catch! This photo looks a lot like it was from the session where he posed with his bronze bust.Delete
Oh, right! That's the photo I'm thinking of.Delete
I had a feeling you were alluding to that bronze bust photo. Bess held on to that bronze bust. It must have felt like Harry was still with her.Delete
