There are plenty of photographs on these pages of broken, but absolutely lovely looking old vending machines. There’s even some of a still operational retro toast dispenser.
The series below, however, is different, as it’s a collection of fully functioning old machines including not one, but two actual toast makers. In fact, the sheer variety of food and drink on offer could sustain life, albeit not so healthily, for a very long time, with even film available to document the endeavour.
A set of machines that are all there due to the commitment and passion of just one man. Someone who sources, mends and maintains them, with the obvious joy he feels for what he does reflected in the faces of those visiting, although not so much in ours when we ate one of the hamburgers.
