Empire Arcadia at the Black Country Museum

I remembered to take my camera this Easter on a trip to the Black Country Museum.
Here are some pictures of the arcade at David Jones' funfair.

Thanks for the great photos, Mr. PM. Looks like quite a bit of monkey business going on with the allwins!

I've no doubt John, piloting that penny to New York would be routine for you. I crashed just beyond Croydon Airport. A shame, I've always wanted to visit Cander. !PUZZLED!
