Freind gave me some old operators mags like Play Meter to look at. I will post up some pics/articles that I reckon are great to look back on.

I'm guessing the publisher of this material is long gone so there's unlikely to be a problem. But it the event that someone complains it can easily be removed so I don't think there'd be any real exposure.

Cool Creech. Here is what a US dealer listed his reco'd s/hand machines for back in 1979.

Check the price of Solar Ride lol.
Actually I like Solar Ride, but was I surprised its the highest price pin of the list. How cheap is EK in comparison!
More pics to come!

Flash Back arcade in the Early 80's in Australia. Anyone know what city?

Love the row of early SS machines!

Wow thanks for posting the pictures of FLASHBACK man does that bring back memories.  Spent half my child hood there.  Was in Bourke Street Melbourne and over two levels.

They also had an Atari Hercules at one stage.

Great Memories #*#

Can anyone ID the pins on the end?. Second last one is Mata Hari for sure. 3rd last one might be a Dragon?.

Really not sure on the end one.
