    They look a lot older than I imagined - they remind me of microfiche readers that libraries have! Those one in Twocky's picture look as if they are from the 1960s or earlier.

    The ones that come to mind were upright ones that stood on the floor and were nearly six feet tall.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

Chocolate machines are more prominent - even my school had one.
    Tarue George - I recall my/our local Baths and getting Onion Ring Crisps and the likes from the Machine and that must be about 1984 (in terms of really really old type Swimming Baths)

    What a strange combination of a smell with the Cloride from the Baths it sure made

    I remember my local pool having Seabrook crisps in their machine, Tomato Sauce, Salt & Vinager and Cheese & Onion were my favourite flavours.

    My grandad found some Maxpax instant tea cups whilst sorting out a box with all of his coach driver gear in it, they were dated 1982! Naturally I had to try adding hot water to it and it looked like tea! The milk had all solidied but if you were in a zombie apocalypse and could filter it and put fresh milk in it’d most likely be ok

    The drinks machines in Toolstation are Klix.

    Klix is a subdivision of Mars Confectionery.

    Speaking of old paper cups, I wonder whether the BBC still have vending machine paper cups with the BBC logo on them like they used to in the 1980s?

    I thought that Klix was a toy manufacturer, in the Lego vein.

    I thought it was common knowledge back then - comedians used to make jokes about them.
