Houdini: His Legend and His Magic Part Two

The following items represent not only a personal and very touching introduction from Doug to his parents, but many rare documents and photos from Houdini’s early and formative years.

As with all legends, Houdini didn’t sprout fully formed and these pictures and clippings give us a very unique insight into this time in his life.
