10 of these machines were in use in 2003, they were the originals as you describe, with the clown logo. They were actually situated in the arcade at the top left of the steps immediately in front of the pier entrance. Last year, there were only 4 there. I asked where the others were and if they were for sale. Nobody knew and the proprietor was on holiday abroad, so I forgot all about them. I was there again just 2 weeks ago and there were none there. I asked about them again and was introduced to the proprietor who had sold them off as scrap at the end of last season because they were too much trouble. He reckons a guy made him an offer for the 4 and another dozen he had out back and he accepted the offer. So, obviously, 16 still existed until recently. That's all I know. Regards, Vic.
