Magic Corner, in Covent Garden London, has existed as a work place for the street Illusionist for more than five hundred years. The Magician performs magic tricks to earn a crust, his wage having dipped to a third of what it what it was ten years ago. His motivation to publically perform the illusion is to collect the reward: a token blue, brown, purple or pink promissory note. When banknotes were first introduced, they were a promise to pay the bearer in coins, but gradually became an alternative once the discs became too heavy. A banknote is simply an illusion made of paper, ink and foil. Invisible money is a transaction fabricated by digits.
