Topic: Baltimore's Art Magic Shop and manager William Young
Message: Posted by: Jim Magus (Mar 15, 2019 09:24AM)
I am looking for information on a Baltimore magic shop that advertised in the Eagle Magician back in 1917-1918. Art Magic Shop appears to have been managed by William Young. William Young was considered "Baltimore's oldest and greatest magician" according to the Baltimore Afro American newspaper. Young was performing since 1837 in Boston, and apparently came to Baltimore by 1840 and I do not know whether he had a son with the same name who was also a magician, or if there was another William Young in Baltimore who was a magician. Does anyone have any information on Baltimore's William Young? or Baltimore's Art Magic Shop?
