In 2006, Ken Trombly hosted the Magic Collectors Association in Roslyn, VA, just across the Potomac from DC. Big convention full of the heaviest hitters in magic and magic history. In a room downstairs, he set up his beautiful $28K levitation, and hired two beautiful young models to staff the thing so that anyone who wanted to could come get their picture taken while standing behind it looking like Thurston or someone of that era.
