Hi Rigg, glad you enjoyed it. I shot the footage at around 10.00 a.m. so I guess there were a decent number of customers present for that time of the day; the arcade had only more or less opened up. I actually tried hard to shoot the film so as to avoid having people in the way. Although it doesn't look like it, the 'route' I took was forced upon me due to people in the way playing the machines. I can tell you that if I had taken the film a little later in the day, you probably would have seen more of the backs of people playing the machines than the machines they were playing!
I would add that Mr Morley told me that he has built a new arcade to travel with, but it isn't quite ready. So I guess this arcade will shortly be retired. So, it's a bit of history that you are seeing in more ways than one.

Quite agree with you Slotalot, and there is a technical term for this, it's called getting old ! SkEpTiCaL

My Son in law loves these machines, trouble is a lot of us did not grow up in the high tech whize-bang age of electronics (although I now sit at a computer all day working) so we just don't have that affinity to such machines. With the old vintage machines at least you feel that you have a degree of involvement and control but with the modern electronic machine its as if you are just an on-looker. Give me the sound of falling pennies, steel ball on glass and the tick, clang, click of the mechanical machine any day.
