Book- Houdini's Tour of Australia
When escapologist Harry Houdini toured Australia in 1910 he brought magic, mystique, his wife and an aeroplane.
Houdini conquered crowds and nearly caused riots, he escaped straitjackets and shackles and flew through the air.
Some said he was supernatural, to others he was a fraud, but Houdini confounded them all.
This is the story of Harry Houdini, 'the greatest and most astounding artist that ever appeared in Australia'.
