Handcuff Queens

Gary Hunt recently started a fascinating site dedicated to Handcuff Queens: woman escape artists who operated during the Houdini era.  Who knew? 

Learn about the Pauline and Lewis, early pioneers of the escape act, and  Marie Shannon’s original publicity stunts performed as “Lady Raffles”.  As Gary says, “Hopefully this blog will provide these performers with some of the recognition they deserve.”
