It's time for the third Houdini Month Contest. This time, it's a little different. You have to answer a question correctly, and then your name goes into a drawing for the prize. So you'll need your Houdini knowledge on this one. And it's not easily looked up. Please do not post the answers on this page.
Only 1 entry per person To enter: Send me an email, with the subject heading 'Houdini Contest 3' to firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your full name in the email. Remember to include your answer to the question below... On Saturday Oct 28, 2017, I will draw a name from all of those who answered correctly.
QUESTION: In the book, Houdini The Untold Story, there are illustrations of various handcuffs at the end of each chapter. What is the source of those illustrations? In other words, where did they first appear?
Sadly, it appears that I've made this contest question too hard, or no one is interested in this coffee mug, lol! I say that because I've not received many responses and not one correct one. I will keep it up till Saturday and then offer a new contest next week.
UPDATE: Looks Like I've got to cancel this contest. Lack of response makes me think the question was too hard. That's too bad, I thought it was a really clever question, maybe too clever. Oh well. Monday, I'll have a new contest, the last one for Houdini Month!
