Nor have I. Thanks to that excellent little Shire Album publication, Automatic Vending Machines
by Colin Emmins we have some great pictures of once common but now very rare machines, including this definitive 1934 platform image, in which can be spied two (foreground and background) Peter's Swiss Milk Chocolate vendors, a double Nestlé's Chocolate vendor, a B.A.C. Try Your Weight
scale and two eight column B.A.C. vending machines. I wonder which station it was.
As the advert below proclaims, Peter's was the first and original milk chocolate, thanks to Swiss manufacturer, Daniel Peter's success in combining chocolate with powdered milk. The powdered milk was supplied by neighbour, Heinrich Nestlé, who later produced milk chocolate under license to Peter, before the two companies merged. http://rococochocolates.com/blog/swiss- ... ch-nestle/
