Re: Bollands / B.M.CO The Lifeline

RE lifeline, the clips are hidden behind the scenery. Besides the painted glass there is also the painted backboard. The clips are the backboard scenery - all very clever. Has anyone else got this machine? I was told years ago that J Gresham had one, but the glass was broken in transit to the States...

Re: Bollands / B.M.CO The Lifeline

Bollands / B.M.CO The Lifeline

A machine from my collection. Had this a few years. I guess it dates from the 1920s. Apart from waxing the cabinet, nothing else done to it. This is a coin/flick machine. I don't think many have survived due to the painted glass.

Re: New Polyphon Supply shocker identified

Hi all.
The coin entry I made, also the cashbox door. The top pediment was with the machine. The pictures were taken as I was assembling and waxing the cabinet. The machine was bought in Shropshire a few years ago in original condition. That's all I know of it.

Re: Harper’s Volta? Electric shock

Re Electric Shocker Machine, here is another one (until recently in my collection). I think they date from the 1900s. Also saw one in ITALY for sale a few years ago -- so there must be a few still about.

Re: 285 members ..... Hello! where are you?

:cry: Hi this is my first stab at a contribution on your site. I have lots of pics but can't seem to grasp how to do it. Sorry I am not very good at the computer. Don't think I shall bother again.
