Demon on unicycle shop display

This was once on display in Davenport's retail shop. The demon on the unicycle rides up and down on the wire, as a result of one end of the wire slowly moving up and down driven by an electric motor. It was renovated by engineer and magician Tony Middleton of Cambridge with help from John Davenport in 2014/2015. Tony Middleton is on the right of the photograph and Roy Davenport on the left.
