THE VICTORIAN HOUDINI HALLOWEEN SEANCE POSTER
During the mid-nineteenth century, the belief that
the living was able to communicate
with the dead was all the rage in Europe and America.
By 1850, being a spiritualist soon became an accepted profession.
Soon a growing number of friends and families would gather around
darkened tables, join hands and attempt to contact their dearly departed with
the help of a professional medium or "sensitive."
Séances were usually held with the usual knockings, table tipping,
rappings on the walls and objects hurled across the room by unseen hands.
The most famous woman to practice spiritualism of that era was
Mary Todd Lincoln and Queen Victoria, who's belief in spiritualism
grew stronger after both of their beloved husband's had died.
