  1. I have some items like the posters and a few pictures. My proudest item is a letter from the chief of detectives to Houdini telling him how much his staff enjoyed the class on fraudulent mediums and wanted him to do another class.

    I have a watch that has his picture dressed in his tux, sleeves rolled up and his arms and hands chained. People comment on that when they see it.

    Thanks for sharing. Some of these I had not seen before. Only wish it had captions to tell some of the people he was with.
