Halloween Houdini Seance October 27 2014, 0 Comments
Collection of Barbara Levine / projectB.com
Harry Houdini, one of the most famous magicians of all time, was born in 1874 and died in Detroit on October 31, 1926. Due to his popularity, soon after his death the society of American Magicians proclaimed Halloween to also be Houdini Magic Day. This photograph taken in Detroit, in 1946, shows thirteen magicians holding a midnight seance in an attempt to contact Houdini's spirit. Their seance was considered unsuccessful but still to this day amateur and professional magicians come together on Halloween to conjure the magical ghost of Harry Houdini.
