The Davenport Collection
- a growing resource on magic and entertainment history

Jokes, cartoons, sayings and notes kept by magician Paula Baird

The magician Paula Baird (Paula Slade) clearly put a great deal of effort into gathering and collating this collection. Although unrelated to magic, the fact that Paula collected these items gives a private glimpse into the personality of one of the most successful British female magicians of her day. She was a lovely lady and a good friend of the Davenports. In 2022 these items were passed to Paula’s grandchildren.
