Subject: OT: Rambling recollection of childhood bingo machines
Completely OT but my earliest coin-op
memory (I'm only 37) is of a fairly seedy hamburger shop near where I lived
that was full of bingo machines.
When I say "seedy", I mean that the awning out the front of the shop had "Hot Dogs" painted on it, but they scraped out the "D" and replaced it with
a "W" so that it read "Hot Wogs". Ahh the days of the swinging 70s.
All I remember of bingos is the
incessant clacking noises they made, and some guy placing a machine and
pressing the buttons so that the winning
combos on the back glass slid around somehow. I only remember this because it was next to a GottleibVolley. I could never figure out how to play the
damn things, so I just thought they were piles of rubbish (what do you expect from a 6 year old).
