Coin Machines is a thorough look at slot machines, jukeboxes, arcade, counter and pinball games, trade stimulators, vending machines, and coin operated scales, all described in detail and abundantly photographed in color. These coin operated machines- invented in England, adopted in America in the 1880s, and most prolifically produced in Chicago, Illinois-have been a part of everyday life for over one hundred years. "Automatic machines," as they were first called, are imaginative, entertaining, useful, colorful, and reflect changing technology as well. The text presents methods for identifying different types of machines, their history and development, and helpful hints on where to look for theÿmachine of your dreams.
