Re: Whales "Sports Win" photo needed

Not a perfect photo, but the only one we have... posted by Treefrog.
I think it's the same image which is on your website and arcade-history.com!

Re: Stamp vending machine that doesn't vend stamps?

The plate says Brecknell, Munro (or Dolman?) & Rogers - my guess is a change machine that's lost its instruction plate: 6 pence piece in, pull the handle for a slice of 3 old pennies from each tube. Perhaps the small window? beneath the slot indicates when it's out of pennies... but how?

Re: Boland Black Beauty, Screen Stars, Brooklands, White City...

These bandits look quite stunning all tarted up. The base of yours appears to be chromed, unlike the wooden base pictured, top of page?
Bolands were more or less ignored when I started collecting, because they were regarded as mutilated Mills bandits. The tide seems to have turned.

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

All good points GW, but I suspect the lit up allwins took a few more coins, all things being equal...
The cord on this one goes out through a hole in the back.

Re: Oliver Whales floor-standing & counter-top 3D stereoviewers

Here's another 'Fair And Warmer'. I guess it makes sense they would advertise different content so you could have several in an arcade, just like the Mutoscopes.
