1925 Classic photograph of famed magician Harry Houdini, as he shows off his classic handcuff escape trick for a photographer. Taken near the end of his life, this is clean and clear and represents one of only a few we have ever seen showing "Handcuff Houdini" actually wearing a pair of the cuffs! The photo has some creasing and pinholes from editorial use, but overall it looks better than the technical grade. Recently pulled from a newspaper archive and offered here for the first time ever!
