Does anyone else enjoy ‘going back in the day’ or is that just us? The history of vending is truly fascinating and the one aspect we’ve always enjoyed about the industry is seeing the flurry of old machines or products on the internet or social media. The latest one we’ve found is one that we just had to share: a perfume vending machine from 1950! How about that for a little ‘Thursday Throwback’?
This vintage dispenser was developed before even us. A dime was all that was needed for a woman to dispense a quick spray of her chosen perfume, to which the likes of Chanel was available. How good would this have been if you’ve left for a night out without remembering to have a quick spray, ladies?
From what we can make out, selection was made using a ‘plunger’. We suppose this highlights how the industry was nearly 70 years ago now. We’re quite disappointed that we didn’t manage to see this first hand if we’re honest. It’s a world away from the modern day vending machines that we’re used to, but that’s what makes it so intriguing. Make sure you click on the header image to take a good look!
