For 100 Years, Magicians Have Been Sawing People In Half


On January 17, 1921, in a north London theatre, “an English magician called Percy Thomas Tibbles literally and laboriously sawed through a sealed wooden box that contained a woman. It was a sensation and has since become one of the best known magic tricks, performed with all manner of tools and varying degrees of blood – always involving someone cut in half and nearly always with them miraculously put back together.” – The Guardian
