Hiudini & Lovecraft at the Hippodrome

In this blog, we've previosuly discussed Lovecraft and CM Eddy going to see Houdini at the Hipodrome.

Above you'll see a vintage ad for that performance. It clearly discusses that part of the show was exposing fakery by spiritualists and mediums. He'd just had a major, national, and hugely public battle with "Margery". Lovecraft had to know Houdini's whole fiber and being screamed out to do battle with these elements.
