Profile of Val.walker
Hello to All,

I am Val Walker, grandson of the illusionist and escapologist Valentine A Walker.

I am in the process of collating and digitising my grandfathers story from our family archives. It will be a long and slow job, but once complete I intend to make all the information (except private (family type stuff) or secret (magicians code)) available on a website dedicated to him.

We have a huge amount of stuff, but I am sure that there must be masses more out there. Could I please ask if any members that have anything relating to Val in their collections could they please share these with us so that I can make the information as complete as possible.

I would also be interested in making contact with the family of Jeff Atkins to try and locate the whereabouts of the Radium Girl cabinet that Val loaned him.

I have loaded a couple of pictures to Flickr that may be of interest to members:

The Tank in the Thames 1920: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjMNdJRf

The Radium Girl Cabinet 1968: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjMQcJ3a

The John Bull Straight Jacket (sorry for the poor quality, but these were from slides of the original pictures. I'll update them with the originals as soon as I find them! http://flic.kr/s/aHsjMNg2Ph
