About 50 years ago (I am 64) I used to see some of the big illusionists at the Glasgow Empire i.e. Mr Kalanag, The Great Levante and my favourite Richiardi Jnr.
I would like to know more about these, especially Richiardi Jnr. and any other of the older acts that appeared in variety theatre.
I am the Secretary for the Scottish Music Hall Society and I have a very large collection of variety theatre memorabilia with quite a large file on magic and illusion acts.
Could anyone give me information on any of the above or point me in the right direction.
Cheers Bob Bain
