LIFE PHOTOS OF MAGICIANS ONLINE

I just became aware of the fact that Google has been archiving many of the amazing photos which appeared in Life Magazine during its' publication which ended in April of 2007. Among these are some real gems from the history of magic including Orson Welles performing, Tony Curtis as Houdini, Herbert Easley, Pierre Cartier, David Copperfield and many, many more. Enjoy this great resource.
