Growing up in New York, my siblings and I spent many sumnmers attending Brooklyn Day Camp (now closed for many years) . In BDC's Facebook group I saw pictures of some of the old arcade games the camp had in its large main building. I love these games and did at the time too, because they were mechanical (and of course not digital) masterpieces. There's something gratifying about the feel and sounds of mechanical games. Here are a few of the photos. Hmmm. maybe I'll scan the web for some mechanical arcade games and see what I can come up with and post.

I saw these on the blog of Tara Bradford. This one (above) is a French Guignol puppet theater and along with the marionettes is for sale at the Foire aux Antiquaries at Place Saint Sulpice, Paris.
The one below, another Guignol theater, also from Tara's site, is from the 1920's.
