Researching Magic History

With all this time on my hands, I've been researching magic history for fun. I recently stumbled upon some information that will make you smile. No! It will make you laugh out loud. Then, you'll smile for the rest of the day. As a matter of fact, you might even want to share it with the world the moment you read it.


Trust me. This bit of info is THAT good!


Look Out For Fun

Would you believe me if I told you there was a real-life magician named Harry Potter? It's true! I know, it's too good to be true. But it's real. Look at this Canadian newspaper clipping from the Dundas True Banner and Wentworth Chronicle.

"Harry Potter 'The Original American Wizard' brought his show to the Town Hall of *Dundas, Ontario (Dominion of Canada)." - Original Ad Posted Sunday, May 23rd, 1858

*Dundas, Ontario is now modern-day Hamilton, Ontario (Canada).

Dundas Town Hall Where Wizard Magician Harry Potter Performed.


It seems Harry Potter's act included:

  • - Legerdemain
  • - Sleight-of-hand
  • - Ventriloquism
  • and a variety of Herculean feats.

Must of been one hell of a show!
