Julis and Agnes Zancig, a married pair of Danish mentalists billed as "Two Minds With But a Single Thought," were the presenters of a world famous thought reading act that many believed was genuine but in fact relied upon an ingenious and highly elaborate code. Their first big break was at Hammerstein's Roof Garden in New York City. Following their first appearance in London at the Alhambra Theatre, Rotary Photos published a series of photo postcards featuring them two of which are seen here. They had a long-standing run at Coney Island, toured the world, and even allowed the pblication f an almost uselessly small portion of their code, to further confuse their fans.
