  1. Oh my goodness. I was randomly searching for teen vintage photos for a project and came across this post. My heart jumped when I read “magic” in the 50’s but then I see your grandma was Irene Larsen! My grandfather was Leo Irby, escape artist. He and my family knew everyone there at the Magic Castle very well. My mom, who also passed away 2 years ago on March 19, 2017 (days part) … She told countless stories about the people there, as she spent much of her youth around them. I specifically remember talking about your grandma. She LOVED Irene. Oh how I wish I could have shared this article with her. Small, small world!
