The round badge above the escalator could carry either Mills' Owl or the SEGA star but I'd guess a Sega, due to the formica sides, I've not seen a Mills Hi Top with placcy sides (awaits to be educated by incoming)
The coin hole is on the wrong side for a Mills Hi-Top but apart from that, it bloody well looks like one. Of course, that doesn't mean it's not a Sega. Hard to tell in that picture, but it looks to me like the reel glass is missing, so I wonder if it's just a prop machine and maybe someone thought it would be a good idea to tart up the scratchy old case with a bit of formica?

:cool: Jukebox Jive! :cool:

A couple of photos of what must now be very collectable Jukeboxes :D ,
The first was found in an episode of "Sykes" from 1972 and shows Hattie Jacques & Eric Sykes sat in a cafe.

The next photo is once again from HI-DE-HI :!: and was taken in the Laughing Cow Milk Bar at Maplins holiday camp, also in this shot are Ruth Madoc (Gladys Pugh) & David Griffin (Clive Dempster).

Once again I dont know the makes or models :oops:

And why is it behind the bar?
Two Pints of Lager.
Looks like the barmaid has been stealing the peanuts too....

Looks like you were right :D
Here is the unforgettable Basil Fawlty (John Cleese) in the bar with said bandit. :tarah:

Actually, I think it's an Aristocrat Kingsway?

Well spotted Op B ,what do you think about the beer? Cold tea, I'd bet!

Au contraire, from careful examination of the head and color, it appears to be Watney's Red Barrel, a popular non-alcoholic beer substitute from the period, at room temperature and a little flat.
