Subject: Coin-Op Music Graphics Wanted

I am writing a book called "Let the Other Guy Play It!", a history of mechanical music in America. I need photos of machines, and on location in bars, saloons, restaurants, etc. Also machine literature, hopefully in color. Book will cover period of original Edison M coin-ops, music box coin-ops, nickelodeon pianos (circa 1898-1926), orchestrons and early to modern jukeboxes.

I will buy, borrow or copy. Anything used will get credit in the book, so if you are a collector or dealer it can be helpful to your promotion. The book is being written now, and should be out by late 1997.
