Happy Birthday Robert-Houdin
Today, December 6th 1805, Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin was born in Blois France. He would go on to become a clockmaker, inventor, scientist and the Father of Modern Magic. Strange moniker today though as all of his magic was very Victorian in it's design and execution. However, for his time it was quite modern. Today he would be 207 years old. Happy Birthday Robert-Houdin!
