The Dickson Nickelodeon pinball arcade/ice cream parlor reached its peak expansion in Fall 1975. That October, one of my partners, architecture student Hank Colker, drew a floor plan showing the equipment layout of the Dickson Nickelodeon. Hank's plan serves as a guide for a photographic tour of the Dickson Nickelodeon.
My friends and I operated the Dickson Nickelodeon, a pinball arcade/coffee shop in the basement of a dormitory at Cornell University. We had acquired 23 (very) used coin-operated machines: pinball machines, arcade games, vending machines, and a penny scale.
During the 16 weeks of the fall 1974 semester, I recorded the cash box receipts for each of the 17 working machines. I don't know why I retained those records; I wish I had kept all the machines instead.
Can you guess which games were the most popular?
