John Nevil Maskelyne performs a spirit cabinet illusion, c1910. Creator: Unknown

John Nevil Maskelyne performs a spirit cabinet illusion, c1910. How the tricks are performed - "A coach-horn or megaphone is useful for picking things up and putting them through the aperture in the door when securely tied'". John Nevil Maskelyne took up a challenge by Sir Hiram Maxim to reproduce a trick originally performed by the Davenport brothers, fraudulent spiritualists from America, and by an imitator of theirs, a Mr Fay. Maskelyne (1839-1917) was a British stage magician, escapologist, paranormal investigator and inventor of the pay toilet. From "Mr. Maskelyne's Reply to Sir Hiram Maxim", published in "The Strand Magazine, an illustrated monthly", Volume XL - July to December 1910. [George Newnes Ltd, London, 1910]

Soviet leader Joseph Stalin and author Maxim Gorky, Moscow, USSR, 1931

Soviet leader Joseph Stalin and author Maxim Gorky, Moscow, USSR, 1931. Gorky (1868-1936) was one of the pioneers of socialist realism in literature. He was a fierce opponent of the Tsarist regime and became involved with the Bolsheviks after the 1905 Revolution. In 1932 Stalin (1879-1953) persuaded Gorky to return to the Soviet Union permanently from Italy, where he had been living because he was suffering from tuberculosis. As Stalinist repression increased within the USSR, Gorky was placed under house arrest in 1934. It has been suggested that his death two years later came at the hands of agents of the Soviet secret police and security organisation, the NKVD. Found in the collection of The Russian State Library, Moscow
