Here's a photo from the July 27, 1974 Buffalo Evening News showing how the Water Torture Cell was displayed at the Houdini Magical Hall of Fame in its early days. 

Can't say I love the idea of a Houdini mannequin hanging inside this precious prop. But it's certainly preferable to the later water effect that leaked and damaged the cell. This display can also be seen a museum postcard for the 1970s below. 

You can see some other images of the Water Torture Cell on display at the Houdini Magical Hall of Fame throughout the years via the links below.
