Bottle Production

Bob Read's bottle from silk production, stolen from under the jacket, was first published as part of the routine “Opening Time” in Abracadabra, Vol. 31 No. 782, 21 Jan. 1961, p. 20. It later appeared in Thanks to Pepys , 1973, p. 10. Read cites Remo Inzani's bottle production from The Gen, Vol. 13 No. 10, Feb. 1958, p. 293, as his inspiration. The similarities are great.
