Re: Lou Tannen - Memories

Lou and Irv was always very nice to me. When I got out of the service I moved to Pittsburgh, but during every visit to NY, I'd stop in to the shop. At that time Mitch, John and Presto were behind the counter. Lou told me that Pittsburgh magician, (and one of my good friends), Harry Albacker was prob...

Re: 42nd Street Cafeteria

Are you talking about the same group who used to meet upstairs at Rusoff's? I used to attend it when I got into the city.

Re: Want to buy cups and balls

Sorry, that last message was directed to Bill. since he knows more about C&B's than anyone that I know of, I thought that he might be able to give me a lead on what these are.

Re: Want to buy cups and balls

I don't know if these would even interest you, but about 50 years ago I was given a trunk of magic that belonged to an magician who died. In it was what I perceive to be a cheap set of C&B. They are light weight & have one bead around the middle. Shiny copper color on the outside, and a dull...

Re: What are some big hitting effects for Kid shows?

I'm not a big fan of most sucker tricks. The one that I enjoy the most is silk to egg.

You might also want t...

The last time that I saw him was when he was working for a sideshow not far from Tannen's. There is some of his show on youtube. Needle through balloon and Slydin...
