"Remembering Dunninger"
http://bit.ly/684X4A

In Sid's first tweet of 2010, he recalls watching Dunninger perform in Toronto in the 1920s.

And the adventure begins...

Sid travels to Montreal to board the ship to England. Before arriving in Montreal, however, he stops to visit Joseph Ovette, inventor of the famed “Master Move”.

That is a great website, I added a banner link from Abbotts link page to your site, you can see the link at http://www.magicgettogether.com/links.html , let me know if you would like any changes. I know you'll get much traffic from the Abbott folks as Sid was very loved and respected and did a bunch to make the "Get Together" what it is today.

It sounds like its been a good week for Sid at the Magic Capital, Abbotts found a whole box of Sid's "Magic Flavors" trick just the other day (after about a ten year absence we will have it back in the inventory today or tomorrow)

All the best on your site

Thanks very much for the link.

If you read "Smoking Goldston" when it first went up, head back for another look. We found some additional info about the Rutherford Rising Cigarette which we posted.

Sid's rising cigarette went over so well, they made him an honourary member in the London Magician's Club (which ceased in the 30s). He also brought out some old memorabilia including his membership card (now over 80 years old) and his medallion.

While at the London Magic Club, Sid met a young magician about the same age by the name of Ned Williams. Although most everyone today will probably know him better as Robert Harbin.

He also had the chance to find out about some of the practical jokes that went on behind the counter at Davenports in London. Find out how Harbin "Hooked" Davenport: http://bit.ly/b8CJqo
