When Houdini dismisses Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's credulousness by saying he "once authenticated a doctored photograph of fairies in a garden," he refers to the Cottingley Fairies. Two English girls faked a series of fairy photos in 1917 which Doyle wrote about in 1920 as evidence of metaphysical phenomena. See more
