Re: Crompton Cover The Spot flyer

This is the first machine I ever remember playing. There was one of these on the North pier in Blackpool in about 1972. We were on holiday at the time and mum and dad gave me 10d to play the slot machines, I was only about 7!

Happy days! :*:

Re: Bell Fruit - Wildcat

Assuming it's the machine pictured.
Miss Jenny Lewis, the winner of Miss UK 1967 appears on the front glass

Re: **WANTED**
