Houdini's Home In Budapest

Postby Kevin Connolly » August 17th, 2010, 12:04 pm

David Stahl, noted magic historian and collector, has sent me some images of his latest find, Houdini's home in Budapest. I have posted the images and more details on my blog. Here is the link:

Patrick Culliton dug up some great information on Houdini's warehouse in NJ. I posted a picture to the link on how it looks today on my blog. I also posted a letter from the grandson of the man who bought the warehouse from Hardeen. There's some interesting material there. Here is the link:

I tracked down Houdini's boyhood home in Budapest back in 2007.

If anyone is interested, I have some pictures of the front door and of a show I did in a Jewish-sqauthouse/cafe during a day of nationalist(read neo-fascist) riots here:

Kevin, thanks for reminding me of a wonderful day.
