Discuss the historical aspects of magic, including memories, or favorite stories.

My grandfather was Syd Brockman, owner of Syd Brockman Magical Supplies (Seattle WA) in the late 60s and early 70s. Though I knew him well, and was in my 20s when he died, I did not know the magic community that was such a big part of his life (I did not perform magic myself.) I would be grateful to anyone that would share their memories and/or pictures of my grandfather, Syd Brockman, and his magic store. - Keith Jacobson
