Houdini, Harry. Real photo postcard picturing Houdini diving into a river. Brighton England, July 1909. The photograph captures a handcuffed Houdini diving into the water where he will make his escape. Mailed by Houdini to his brother, Theo Hardeen, and addressed in Houdini’s hand on the verso, with the message, “D.B.D. [Dear Brother Dash] My latest dive July 7-09. From a steamer. Brighton England. All’s well.” Creasing and wear in image; good.
