Re: Cake vending Vintage Slot

I remember a vending machine from the 1970s that vended a pint of milk in a glass bottle and orange juice in the same machine.
I think Penguin books had a vending machine also for their books.
How many different types of vending machine are there?

Re: British Mutoscope

I had one of the wooden mutoscopes I got it from a collector from the South Coast.
The case had a lot of woodworm, so I only kept the mechanism and viewing glass.

Re: South Shields Museum Seaside Exhibition

Looks like a nice collection of machines and a rare Myers Road Test also.
Are there any more pictures? I don't think I'll be able to get there for the exhibition.
Well done. Maybe it's time for a show like this in London.

Re: Exhibit Merchantman crane South Pacific dockside backgro

Hi,
This is excellent. I have seen another variation with a pelican sitting on the pier.
These pictures are often missing or covered with a piece of glass.
Well done.

Re: Dreamland, Margate

The scenic railway was not allowed to open because of health and safety rules. Each carriage now has to have a wire cage fitted to it so the riders don't fall out.
