Daily Practice 282/365

Title: "Insert Quarter to Watch Us Dance"
(click image to view larger)
While down on Fisherman's Wharf, we wandered into the Musée de Mécaniques, which has a collection of old games and curiosities. These fine gentlemen were willing to dance for a quarter. It was very interesting to see the range of games from this era that were designed to amuse people and part them from their hard earned money. Others that were quite intriguing included "What every married woman must not avoid", and "Don't Fail to See the 'Unknown'? (for adults only)". The museum also had an impressive array of coin operated video games, including Pong.
