Re: Indian Fakir Working Model

Wow! What a line up of interesting working models. If you have time now, Tim, seeing as we're all stuck inside looking at our four walls, it would be great if you could produce a video going down the line, showing the operation of each machine.

Just a suggestion.

That's a tantalising photo. Does the line of working models go all around the rest of the room? !!YIPPEE!!

Still is "maker unknown", I can estimate some of the likely owner trail of collectors, but not the original maker.
We still haven't determined the original maker of the Charlie and Mabel either.

Most Working Models are on that one wall, although there is an English Execution on the other side of the room. I have 3 rooms of games, total of 2,500 square feet, over 100 machines. Separated into a 1930's penny arcade theme (1896-1945), with the non-US ones in the side room (working models, Ruffler & Walker 2-player racers etc) and a downstairs area in a 1960's arcade theme (1940-1975). The Indian Fakir, Charlie and Mabel, and English Execution all came indirectly or directly from Todd's collection in 2013-2015. I would say the Indian Fakir is older, 40's or 50's, and Charlie is not as old, could be 50's but I would guess 60's based on how they were converted and materials used.
