The Arcades

Arcade News

On this page we see a few shots of some WW2 arcades. If only the picture quality was a little more matched to your $700 color monitor!

Arcade shot with row of machines.
A long row of games with lots of folks to play them. Not a Street Fighter II in sight.
Outside view of west coast arcade. Playland Arcade.
This is a good shot of a nice big open-front arcade on the west coast. This arcade was operated by Elmer Hanscom. Black out regulations prevented full use of outdoor lighting. The Playland arcade, featuring "free admission". As with the other arcade above, blackout regulations prevented the big electric sign out front from being used at night. After a good round of pin playing, a hot cup of coffee could be had next door at Joe's Cafe.
