[Trade Catalogue] Exhibit Supply Company Catalogue 1924. Amusement Machines -- Post Cards -- Penny Arcade Supplies The Exhibit Supply Company. Manufacturer of Coin Operated Machines, Post Cards and Penny Arcade Supplies. The Largest Plant Manufacturing Legal Amusement Machines and Penny Arcade Supplies in the U.S.A.
Chicago: Exhibit Supply Company, 1924. Wraps. Very Good. 8vo. 19.5 by 12 cm. 12 pp., wraps. Photo images, two per page, of sundry card dispensers and fun fixtures, some of which are long forgotten and no inhabitants of what penny arcades survive, although there may be distant descendants which have comparable gimmickry. Examples: The Radio which vends a love message and photo, or a "Duoscope", a drop machine holding two sets of views. The Gypsy Fortune Teller is something that might be in the memory banks of people still alive. Regardless, a trade catalogue for these kind of novelty machines is a scarce thing, and this particular one, especially. No copies of this, or any of the companies' promotions of amusement machines pre-1970, listed on OCLC. The brochure touts its machines as "an investment" and speaks of the "money earning power" of its machines. Light wear.
