Yale Wonder Clock & Automatic Cashier Machines
By Dave Bowers

I am revisiting a topic I studied ten years ago: the Yale Wonder
Clock Company of Burlington, Vermont, and its two products -- each
of which incorporated a 15-1/2-inch inch Regina music box movement
-- the Yale Wonder Clock introduced in early 1899 and the Automatic
Cashier and Discount Machine a few years later.  In total, about
500 units were made.

I would like to correspond with anyone having examples of either
product as I am creating a registry of surviving instruments.  These
were not created with production-line efficiency and, of those
I have studied, no two are exactly alike!

Thank you for your interest.

Dave Bowers
