    National Geographic magazine collection - 1920s to the 1950s

    My Great grandfather left quite a large collection of old National Geographic magazines for the family. You probably don't find the name familiar, but Earl Lockman, my greatgrandpa, was a well-known magician and escape-artist in his day. "Locks don't lock Lockman" was a phrase often used in his advertisements and posters. His acquaintances included Harry Houdini and others celebrated in that occupation. Anyhow, I have some pictures of the magazines here:

    LOVE IT, My dad had every one from 1909 to 2000 when he passed away VERY sadly my mom didn't know he had always said I could have them and she didn't know I wanted them so she gave them away to a nice family with several kids who promptly started cutting them up Ugggg they even cut the floppy records like the moon landing, sounds of whales and the likes as well as the old maps, I was sick it's been over 17 years and I'm still sick lol.
    Great collection, Let everyone know they are to be passed down.

    I love the older National Geographic's. I still like to read the old articles. Nice collection you have there.
