    Houdini Photo

    I am wondering what the value might be on this early Society of American Magicians photo. It is their 17th annual banquet held in 1921 at the McAlpin Hotel. Harry Houdini was president at the time and is pictured in the center leaning against the wall. His wife Bess is seated in front of him. There are other famous magicians pictured also. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    While I cannot help you put a value on the photo, it seems like it is in excellent shape and just shy of 100 years old! Really neat photo.
    The chances of you getting the most $$$ for it would probably somebody who collects Houdini memorabilia or anything magician related.
    Too bad the actual/name Hotel McAlpin doesn't exist anymore. From what I've found the building is still there but now it is an apartment building by the name of Herald Towers. Never know though, you may want to contact them and see if they're interested in the photo.
