its a page from a magazine, dated 1931, and shows a number of Ilusions being performed by various members of the pentangle club in Cambridge, UK.
Now, the middle two pictures appear to show the selbit saw through being performed.
The seller informs me that the caption bellow reads ..
Now,the date of this picture puts it a meer 10 years after Selbit introduced the Ilusion, so presumaby much of the fuss surounding the performance rights was still going on.1] sawing through a woman : Mr W A Burnett, assisted by Miss Barbara Martin in the world famous illusion
2] the woman who is sawn through : Miss Barbara Martin, with the operator, Mr W A Burnett
particualy as it was 8 years before Selbits untimly demise.
does anyone know anything about mr Burnett?
was he someone officialy touring the Ilusion?
or by this time, was everyone doing it?
I probably have some of the information at home, but would be facinated to hear any other information that readers may have.
sawing thru images.
