He met Prof. Hoffmann, who witnessed his show at Hastings in 1908 and appeared before King George V and Queen Mary in 1917.
After touring Australia in 1925, he also toured America when vaudeville was at its height during the early 1930s.
Some of his routines he performed were the Magic Kettle, an artistic Rice Bowls presentation, and the Bathing Belle illusion (which he used his daughter Betty).
His collection of books and periodicals (the most complete at the time) is part of the Magic Circle library.
