I thought it would be neat to make a post on vintage technology. It never ceases to amaze me how far we have come in the last few decades as far as technology goes. I must admit, though, I do miss some of the old things. I find the vending machines today are more complicated than they were many years ago. I actually had to ask a security guard a couple of weeks ago how one of the vending machines worked, as I hadn't used one in oh, so long, and this one is one of those where you have to punch in the number of your desired item to find out the price before you put your money in the coin slot.
The first photo I am sharing is of a vintage stamp vending machine in the U.S. I really don't remember seeing these machines here in Canada as a child (this is a 1960's photo). I find it kind of neat that it says on the machine that the stamps are in sanitary folders.
