The Ebay machine is a gem, as far as originality is concerned. Do you think it may have started out as a ha'penny machine? The coin slot itself looks to be original.

...still no idea if that part is original and what artwork it ought to feature.
Every countertop OW viewer seems to have different marquee artwork. !PUZZLED!

I have the same pictures saved on my hard drive. My only comment would be that I am more inclined to believe the artwork saying "Whales of Redcar" on it, to be original. :!?!:
ie top right and bottom left.

I thought the lower rhd also has "Whales Redcar" written above the eyeball? Or I could just be going blind in the eyeball!? :o

Yes, they all have the OW name on them, except the first one which has some writing in the same style as the one below it. I think they're all original and 'correct'.

Here's another 'Fair And Warmer'. I guess it makes sense they would advertise different content so you could have several in an arcade, just like the Mutoscopes.
