Colour of Your Hair
This delivered a card taken from a drawer based on the person's hair colour as per the doll's heads on display in the cabinet.
Gypsy Fortune Teller
Automatic Amusement Co.
Inserting a coin causes the dial to spin alternately clockwise and anti-clockwise, driven by the weight of the coin.
One Penny fortune teller
G Robinson 1950s?
Spinning dial type fortune teller, possibly a revamp of another machine. Two battery operated bulbs in the top corners light up when the handle is turned.
Insert a penny and squeeze the handles together to see three bulbs illuminate revealing your romantic mood, lucky day of the week and sporting passion. Myers made several versions of these love tests in slightly different guises.
Uncle Sam’s Philosophy
'Consultation fee 1d.' Uncle Sam's finger points to philosophical advice, personal traits and predictions as the weight of the penny causes the lithographed disc to spin.
When Were You Born?
Simple early astrological fortune telling card dispenser.
Reads: WHEN WERE YOU BORN? If you want your Character, Disposition, Capabilities, and what you will do best in FULLY DESCRIBED, PLACE PENNY IN THE SLOT MARKED THE MONTH YOU WERE BORN IN.
YOUR CHARACTER BY ASTROLOGY - CHARACTERS For Each Month
Your Character From The Colour Of Your Hair
Dumb blondes and fiery red heads? So your disposition is determined by your hair colour! This early, rather plain wall machine exploits the notion, offering personality readings for a penny, a not inconsiderable sum at the turn of the century.
