Filename: Three card trick
Classification: Economic > Hustlers and beggars
Recorded by: IM Rawes
Recording date: May 2008
Description: Hustlers on Cheshire Street, near Brick Lane, east London, run a three-card-trick pitch. The trick is performed on top of an upturned wooden box. The main hustler's voice is heard but he doesn't work alone. Several henchmen loiter nonchalantly to each side of him, and a few curious onlookers stand in front.
Technical guff: Head-worn stereo. Sonic Studios DSM-6S/EH mics and PA-3SX preamp. Olympus LS-10 digital recorder.
Additional notes: None.
