Kreutzberg


Virolainen taikuri J. Kreutzberg, muistopostikortti. Tunteeko joku?

Kommentit:


J. Kreutzberg (J.K. Mandrake) was probably the only Estonian who graduated from the School of American Magicians and became a member of the Society of American Magicians in 1930's. His teacher was Harlan E. Tarbell himself. After that he moved to Tallinn, performed and published a book of tricks. Below is the source, an extract from an old newspaper (in Estonian): http://dea.digar.ee/cgi-bin/dea?a=d&d=esmaspaev19390610.2.42&srpos=3&e=01-01-1900-01-01-1940--et-25--1--txt-txIN%7ctxTI%7ctxAU%7ctxTA-maagia+kreutzberg-------et--

      Thank out for your information. Unfortunately, this old newspaper address does not work. Can you check it for me?

    2. Strange, in my browser the link is working. It takes a while but it still opens. Maybe it opens only in Estonia?

    3. Wau! Yes! Now it appears quite clearly. I do not know why it was not working. Marvelous these computers. I do not always understand.
