William Davenport, and Harry Houdin (no, not him)

Today I've updated the tale of William Henry Harrison Davenport and the dispute surrounding his gravestone, following his death in Australia, in 1877. You can find the article at Magic In Sydney under the "history" button.

The next article is likely to investigate the magician who performed in Australia under the name Harry Houdin from 1860 onwards! There's a name you won't find in "Magical Nights At The Theatre", and there are over ten more new names to follow.
