Re: Automatic Sports Co. Cricketer at HutchinsonScott

Alexander Thynn, otherwise known as Lord Bath (6.5.1932 - 4.4.2020) the 7th Marquess of Bath, was what we in the UK call "an eccentric" both in his dress sense and his private life. :lol:

Re: Automatic Sports Co. Cricketer at HutchinsonScott

It's taken me a bit of time to find, but I knew I had a newspaper cutting of the machine. Not on my computer but a real piece of paper!

Re: Coventry or Collectors auction

I'm an old fart, in my latter 60s, diabetic, mad as a coot, my body has bits that either drop off or joints that sound like a bag of old spanners being thrown around a drum factory by a baby elephant.

Re: Electro-mechanical Wall Machines

What a great video, such fun! You certainly are an expert on that machine, whenever I've played one I have had very little success. Definitely a machine I could make space for in my collection.
Thanks for posting, cheered me up no end! !!GOODONE!!

Re: Win a Prize backflash - original or not?

The one on Ebay is the same machine as the one from the Arena, stripped of its dark varnish.

Re: Auction in Wakefield tomorrow

I think the last time I saw Poz was either at the Copthorne Jukebox Show or at Ascot Racecourse Jukebox Show, at least 15 years ago.
