Some Machines at the Crystal Arcade on Main Street

Going away from Esther and her photo album, here are two close images of two different penny arcade machines in the Crystal Arcade. The first is of Esmeralda the Fortune Teller.

The second image is of the 10 cent price for the nickelodeon music machine.

And for those who miss Esther and her photo album, I will start back with more images tomorrow.

I love interior shots of anything Disneyland. Nice post Matterhorn. Thanks.

Esmeralda has definitely had a makeover! Not the same one...or else they really did a huge repaint.

Nice! I have plenty of fond memories of the Penny Arcade. Even as a kid I appreciated the games that were unique to the park, and the craftsmanship that went into making them. Same with the Pirate Arcade games!

I LOVED those penny machines as a kid!

Ditto to what the Major said.

I always loved the unique games that could be found in any of the Disneyland Arcades...Pirates Arcade especially.

The only thing remaining from that once glorious space is 'Fortune Red' who is now tucked away in a niche along the adjacent courtyard. He was out of order the last time I was at the park.

Ol' Red has been handing out the exact same fortune cards for over 40 years now! A few years back I got the same fortune that my Mom pasted in our picture album from the 1971 trip.
