Houdini family postcards turn up in Texas

Postby JohnCox » June 19th, 2018, 12:31 pm

Recently Bill Bremer, a postcard collector in Texas, contacted me with a remarkable story. Years ago he unearthed a collection of 36 postcards sent to Houdini's sister, Carrie Gladys Weiss, from various members of the Houdini family and troupe (but none from Harry himself). He sent me a dozen images with permission to share them, so ALL THIS WEEK I'm devoting my blog to showing select cards from this amazing find.

You can read Bill's own account of how he found the cards here:

I've just put up today's cards (from brothers Nathan and Leo):
