Remembering Syd Brockman

Postby Keith Jacobson » October 15th, 2010, 2:42 pm

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
