Postcard advertising Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn

Chevalier Thorn was a successful magician and inventor who created illusions such as Noah’s Ark and Dream of the Chalif. Both of these became popular with other headline magicians such as Harry Kellar. The story of Thorn’s very interesting career is told by Paul Freeman in a well-illustrated talk which is to be found on this website here. The German on the postcard translates as An Evening in Dreamland.
