Question for our resident ambassador in Las Vegas.
John,
When I looked up the site of that photo, I didn't expect to find the restaurant, but I did expect to find highway 40... but it's not there. :o Did the name change? Did it become I-80?

Sorry, Coppinpr, we're all hunkered down right now. We can't disclose our location for fear of Corona seeking us out, hence, no directional or mapological information permitted. Please ask again in 60 days, if we're still alive.

Over here the Corona thingy has necessitated us raising the situation to "Better put the kettle on!"

Big photo of BAC Speak Your Weight scales (Getty images).
That dang machine is a heap braver than I am.

This is a really bad photo I think it's a photocopy of a news clipping. It says slot machines being prepared for a new season on Weston Super Mare Pier in the early 60s. It claims the machines were designed and built by the pier owners!!? (would those two blokes be the pier group, and are they under pressure?)
I think I might have seen this piccy before, unless I'm mixing it up with the photo (coppin?) posted months ago of a bank of bandits and kids where the handles also seemed to attach very low on the mech.
Anyhoo I don't recognise them anybody here?

May well be same machines as the payout tray matches the position. The Hi Tops looked like a facade to something else probably electric, which these look to be with the relay on top and wiring loom....
