I'm seeing red spots in front of my eyes

Recommended Posts

Members of the Boy Scout Service Corps getting a briefing, late 1965. I keep looking for myself or friends in shots like this but no luck so far. What I did notice was that Scouts didn't have to worry about their favorite Cola not being available - there were machines for both Pepsi and Coke!

I wonder what machine was in the middle.  Cigarettes crossed my mind - nah, they wouldn't, would they?

A visiting British Boy Scout, but dang it, a bit overexposed so can't make out the middle machine in this one either.

Here we go.... a terrific Aug 64 view.  Somebody switched the positions of the Pepsi and Coke machines.

Looking at the plastic board at the top, I was thinking maybe some kind of frozen ice cream treats, like push-up pops.

I love the idea of the kid assigned to sit there and show off his bird identification skills. LOL

I found this online.  Looks like it's the same model as the Pepsi machine in Bill's photo- I can make out the word "WITH" (crushed ice) behind the Boy Scout.

Nice Swiss Sky Ride view of the back of the Jordan Pavilion.  They had both Coke & Pepsi too.  Looks to me like they were using the Pepsi machine to prop open the back door. LOL

The vending machines look like the rogue keep left signs from a Monty Python skit.
