Where to Go in Germany

An Old Peep Show Machine

In the age before computers and video games, itinerant amusement parks in the  30s to the 50s were the place kids and adults could  have some fun.

At the end of our day hike on the Siebengebirge south of Bonn in Germany, we chanced upon these vintage games machine circa 30s and 50s . On offer was a mechanical fortune teller, a peep show into a “paradise of beautiful women” and a few “Road Racing” machines, the precursor of Grand Theft Autoor at least how it would look like if Sony or Sega games machines were never invented.
