Photograph of David Devant with his daughter Vida and a young Jasper Maskelyne

This rather well known photograph, reproduced in Devant’s ‘My Magic Life’, shows Vida and Jasper as they appeared with Devant in his Boy, Girl and Eggs trick at the Royal Command Performance at the Palace Theatre, London on 1 July 1912. For some reason Devant’s book gives the date of the photograph as 1913.
