Hand saws, chain saws, even lasers: Magic’s famous trick celebrates 100 years

File photo dated 2/6/2015 of Magician Jamie Allan and his assistants Amy Berry (centre) and Natalia Villalowga-Stanton performing a laser sawing illusion. Magicians will celebrate a century of sawing people in half with an online event looking at the history of the trick. This weekend will mark 100 years since PT Selbit completed the trick at the Finsbury Park Empire - it has been a mainstay of the magic scene ever since.

A hundred years ago, an enthralled audience gasped as magician PT Selbit sawed through a wooden crate while a woman was lying inside.
