Sub Trunk Plot for Two-Card Transpositon

R. W. Hull's published “The Boy and Girl Card Illusion” in Smart Magic, 1935, p. 16. This is a transposition of a red King and a black Queen, accomplished by double lifts and a Mexican turnover. While the patter concerns a stage illusion in which a girl in one box magically changes places with a boy in another box, the trick is a clear precursor to the popular presentation of Houdini's Sub Trunk transposition for a two-card transposition.
