Grave of Richiardi Sr
This is the grave of Richiardi Sr. He was a Argentinian magician and the father to the famed Richiardi Jr.. He claimed that his father too was a magician. But it appears that his first job in the magic world was working as an assistant and builder for Ricardo Richardine Sr..
Richiardi Sr was killed in Atlanta Georgia 1937 in a car accident while on tour in the United States.
The grave is located in Greenwood Cemetery Atlanta, Georgia.
