Magic Sets and Shows


It was time for my Mom to pass along old photographs and slides. I scanned in some of the photos already, and had the 500 slides scanned at a photo lab. I ran across these two photos. The first one is my first magic set in Christmas of 1965, I was 10 years old and it was a time of real Christmas trees, popcorn strings of garland, and ice skating on the lake – which all meant Holidays at the cabin.

This second picture was taken a year and a half later during the summer of 1967. On a family vacation to LA, an old friend of my Dad’s – Magic Castle member and performer Bob French performed a magic show in his living room for all seven of us. He gave me an opportunity to assist, and that was it! I’d found a hobby that would always give me joy and fascination
