Percy Who?

The following article was first published in “Coin Slot” on November 26th 1983. It was republished by the author, Nic Costa in 2013 in his book More Automatic Pleasures available from Amazon.  Nic writes; "The original Automatic Pleasures is the more accessible having had numerous citations over the years. It  deals with Everitt and the development {of coin operated machines} in Victorian times and his legacy and carries through to the 1970's" It is with his kind permission that the article appears on our history pages.
