Film of Jim Sherman and Brunel White visiting the Davenports

When magic visitors were invited to the Davenport family home, Ivydene in Kent, there was usually some fooling around. Filming was done outside because of the brighter light. On this film we see Jim Sherman (on the left) and Brunel White (on the right) having fun on the lawn with members of the Davenport family. Jim Sherman was for many years a working magician and then magic dealer in the United States. Brunel White was a magic dealer, also known for a column about magicians which he wrote in the World’s Fair.
