Rewind back to the late 1960’s, before the arrival of video games with their flashing screenings and wide range of monotone bleeps & blips and you’ll find that arcade halls were an entirely different proposition.
Not a Pac-Man in sight, just literally dozens pinball machines, pop gun stands, photobooths, recording devices, games of skill and even mini bowling alleys. Most impressive of all, occasionally there was even fortune teller on hand if you were lucky!
All that and more is on display in these wonderful photos from the Kansas City Wonderland Arcade, shot back in 1968.
