Slot machine in a butcher's shop?

Postby coppinpr » Sun Apr 07, 2013 1:29 pm

As some of you know ..I'm a butcher by trade... I have my own business in south London. I just found this photo on ebay. No, I'm not thinking of putting one in my shop - we have enough trouble with licensing already.

The press release that goes with this photo says it was taken in 1965 (the same year I started as a butcher). It says the butcher had installed the machine in his shop and the leg of pork he is holding was the jackpot prize :o

One hell of a jackpot prize. By my reckoning, the machine would have to be about 40 feet tall to get that leg of pork in the jackpot hopper! :didact:

Familiar advert to promote turkeys, before Matthews rendered them toxic!
