From an arcade in Upper Dauphin County, PA. This picture dates to around the mid to late 1950's even though the machines are much older. Just shows that they were built to last.
The first 8 machines, beginning on the left and going clockwise, are a variety of Mutoscope movie viewers. A couple cast iron "Clamshell" models, (c.1895), a rare "Indian" model (c.1895) that the man is using, and a few all tin models. In the right half of the picture is a c. 1925 Gatter Novelty Company "Grandfather Clock Strength Machine". To the far right, and cut off is an Exhibit Supply Card vendor from 1930. These machines are highly sought after by collectors.
