Rare Houdini Newspaper Pictures
I can't recall seeing these two images before, though perhaps someone else has. If they have been seen, they are at least rare. If not, then yet another new photo discovery for the year. The lower photo looks like it comes from a fairly famous photo shoot. One of the photos from this group was used for his famous Europe's Eclipsing Sensation Poster. This particular photo, Houdini is crouching down, knees bent. The sequence of handcuffs is identical to some of the other photos in this grouping.
