AMECO Step Up To Mike identified

Postby coppinpr » Mon Mar 23, 2020 6:08 pm

I'm looking for for any information about a coin operated voice recording machine made by the Amusement Equipment Co Ltd of Wembley London in conjunction with Voice Records Ltd. I understand that this machine was adopted by the Dutch postal service as part of their Phono Post system. Can anyone help?

Edit-;
I now have a photo of this amazing machine (photographed in Malta) and a little info: date about 1934 and appears in the film Brighton rock (1947), certainly in use in Holland into the 1950s. Anyone heard of the makers?
