Fantastic inclusion Mr P. a lot of work involved in putting that lot on and no mistake!

Looking at "Young Mods in an amusement arcade in London, 1964. (Photo by John Pratt/Keystone Features/Getty Images)" The stuff in the back ground is just as interesting.

There were two arcades that back then had old machines to play on and I have wondered if any of the machines were still in existence. Last weekend I travelled over to Mablethorpe to see if anything was still there for me to photograph bearing in mind this post and the lack of arcade pictures.
I have posted the results of my efforts below.
The arcade owner didn't seem in the least bit interested that he owned some classics he considered them as "the ones that had lasted" The Aherns Pile Driver is in remarkable condition and I remember playing on this machine in the early 70s. He has owned the arcade for 45 years and before you wonder, he was not interested in selling, but I guess if the price was right....... The Jigsaws have been there since new in 1934.
AND NOW THE BAD NEWS. I was due to visit next month but a learned slotty has told me that the owner has sold the lot!!!!

How desperately sad for us slotties. I understand the machines were being freighted for shipment abroad sometime in April/May 2012! :NBG:
