Still a few weeks till Fathers Day but here’s a jump start to the sentimentality.

We were directed to this blog post on Club.Magicians today detailing one woman’s search for pictures of her father, who went by the names Senor Mardo and Mardo the Magnificent, performing “many, many years” ago. It seems like a worthy enough cause so we figured we’d ask you guys.

Anyone have any clues as to where Senor Mardo’s daughter can find pictures of her dad in action?

    Hello, I'm the one trying to assist Roselynn Richardson find photos of her father, Senor Mardo. Thank you so much for getting the word out! Also a huge thanks is owed to Ryan Ogaard for bringing this to a larger audience. Thus far, I have only found one photo of Mardo, which sold at auction 4 years ago. I have Emailed Tannens to see if they can help. Mardo primarily performed in the New York area many, many years ago. I have also attempted to contact Martin Lewis. Lewis has a DVD dedicated to Mardo's Eggbag Routine, I thought he to might be able to help. Thus far, Martin has not responded to my Emails. All assistance is welcome. I am thankful to your website for announcing this here.

    Best Magical Regards,

    Just to update everyone, I have been successful in tracking down 7 photos of Senor Mardo. Needless to say, his daugther Rose is truly estatic. Mardo's widow Lynne Castel (92 years old), is also very pleased. Thank you again in assisting Rose with her request. If anyone finds anymore pictures of Senor Mardo, feel free to contact me.
