One location of August Roterberg's magic shop. Circa 1905 through at least 1916. A 1905 letter from Roterberg shows this address as 176 Ontario, but with the street renumbering of 1910 it became 151 W Ontario, so it's believed that both addresses refer to the same location. Felsman (Felsman's Magical Review Vol 1. No. 6 1920) says this is the third location and that Roterberg moved here from Illinois Street and remained in this location until Feb 1, 1917. Felsman purchased the business at that time.
