Welsh Bros. Circus Ticket and Calling Card. Two pieces, including an 1898 reserved seat ticket, with stub attached (5 ½ x 2”); and a pictorial calling card for the circus director, M.H. Welsh, for the 1901/02 season (2 x 3 ½”). These items hold an association to Harry Houdini, who performed with the Welsh Bros. Circus early in his career, years before achieving international stardom. His work with the Welsh Bros. began in 1895, when he and his wife, Bess, performed Punch and Judy and various sideshow acts in addition to magic. By 1898, still with the circus, Houdini introduced his “Metamorphosis” trunk illusion, the popularity of which was a key stepping stone on his path to becoming a successful solo act.
