Houdini Commemorative T-Shirt


Here is something you don't see every day. A Commemorative Houdini T-shirt. This is produced by the Camel City Goods Company, and it commemorates the Nov 24th, 1924 performance by Houdini at the Winston Salem Reynolds Auditorium. I'll be honest, I didn't go back and fact check this to see if Houdini did indeed perform there on that date*. I just thought it was a very cool t-shirt.

I've done a bit more research into this, and apparently this is the second t-shirt. The original was a tan shirt with reddish lettering. There was also a commemorative button issued by the same company.

*I've gone back to see if I could find any proof of Houdini performing in Winston-Salem on Nov 24th 1924, and sure enough, an article in The Frederick News, Nov 25th, 1924 mentions his appearance at The Reynolds Memorial Hall in Winston Salem on the 24th.

    1. Actually, I just checked this, and it looks like he was indeed in Winston Salem at the Reynolds Memorial Hall on Nov 24th, 1924. His appearance is mentioned in the Nov 25th edition of The Frederick News.

  3. This demonstrates that the thoughts of Henry James are gradually starting to crumble in light of the fact that people were en route to convincing the public authority that women required their normal freedoms. This can measure up to the Industrial Revolution and the strength the plant proprietors had over their laborers. silk robes for women
