On an evening in 1935, in the living room in a house in Baltimore, a husband and wife are sitting at a small table, facing each other. On the table there is a flat, two-foot square of cardboard. The woman leans over close to the board, and, head down close to the board, whispers,” Mother, can you hear me?” The woman is talking to the Ouija Board. In its time in Baltimore it was the way Baltimoreans talked to the dead…Really? Really!
