Vend Dole

Found another scan of an old vending machine lurking on my hard drive and since I am easing into lazy holiday weekend mode, it was easy pickin's today .

Topps gum tabs would have been lined up in each column of their "automatic merchandising" machines and if they came with cards those would have been visible to some degree through the window. I love the instructions as they would explain how so many of the tiny tab cards got so beat up.

These machines sat on countertops in stores, taverns and restaurants, although I suspect the packs with cards did not grace too many bartops!
