Re: Recent purchases

Thank you!! I was hoping no-one had clocked the slick machine lol ! but given I used to play this actual machine and the Grand National I would have went much higher as been looking for these two for years.

Re: Recent purchases

Thanks! Some of the signs and larger items were from Barry's Portrush indeed, though the older stuff was Barry's Bangor. No definitely shouldn't be any added paperwork for old machines like this going to the mainland, though a different story for sausages and cooked meat. In fairness, we have always...

Re: Vintage Slots in Films and Newsreels

Charming video of my seaside town in better times. A lot of the art deco buildings in the video now sadly gone as is the very unusual Barrys building itself, all hit by mysterious fires at the dead of night while waiting for listed status.
