Vintage Tannens

From a vintage Tannens shop photo on display at the NYC Hist Soc “Summer Of Magic” exhibit’s Copperfield collection. We think one is a young Tony Spina and another Lou Tannen. Who are the the man and woman extreme left and right?)

Haha thank you Moxahalla! Well we got 25% correct anyway Smile

I never knew Tannen's had a manager. For how long was Jim Herpick manager? I started visiting Tannen's on Saturdays about '64 or so.

Jim was credited as a Manager in Tannen Cat. #1 (1949) and in Cat. #2 (1955).

Tannen marketed several effects by Jim Herpick, such as: "Ultra Blindfold" and "Cash Vanish".

I have no further information.
