Morning All

Had a nice little trip out this morning down to the aircraft museum at East Birmingham Airport. Expecting bad weather we went early and we were waiting outside for it to open. I have to say we had a pleasant surprize never having been there before we expected the prices to be as advertised £10 for adults, but we were only charged £5.45. I can't understand why they advertise at the higher price. I'm sure knowing that it was much cheaper they would get lots more visitors. As the great grandson is under 2 it only cost us £10.90. That is if you don't count the £20 spent on toy planes.

As I say he is not yet 2 but he has got a mania for planes, so he really enjoyed it and I am sure he will want to go back again. We left just as the rain started to fall. Here are a few snaps out of about 50 that I took. The little hoodie is the great grandson at 22 months hes getting to be a big lad.

This is a vintage Ford gum vending machine from the 1950s. This model was set up to vend gum for 1 penny. The glass globe has a flat top, because originally there was a metal frame positioned on the top of these gumball vendors that displayed the name of whatever local charity the vendor was collecting for. These machines had the capacity to fit 4 lbs. of gumballs. We restored this chrome gum vendor back when we were still in the restoration business.

Dimensions: 12H x 8W
Weight: 13 lbs.

You can buy cheap plastic imitations now, we bought the grandkids some one Christmas. They make quite good money boxes.
