This is a 90 minute historical lecture about magicians during the 1800’s. It explains how they transformed from distrusted street performers at fairs to performers of skill. And ended the century by debunking the foul spiritualists. The lecture covers many incredible people such as James and John Rannie, Richard Potter...the first magicians in America.
 
Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin the French magician who turned magic into a theatrical art form, John Nevil Maskeylne, Spiritualists like the Fox sisters from New York, and much more.
 
Some of their methods and tricks they used will be discussed.
 
Canadian connections are emphasized and many interesting items will be displayed. This lecture is NOT a magic show but includes a few historical magic tricks throughout the lecture.

On the first Saturday of each month here at 'Browser's Den' we have a Magic Club that meets from 2:30pm until 5:00pm. Whether you have been interested in magic for two months or twenty years all are invited to attend.

At the club magicians and hobbyists sit around our 'magic' table and talk magic and show each other tricks. Plus cookies and snacks are provided.

Hope to see you at the next one!  Yours very truly - Jeff Pinsky, Jeff Hinchliffe, Lisa Close & John Cardella.
