ARTHUR JAMIESON MD. LAURIE BINNS Design Engineer





By 1956 Jamiesons had set up shop in the old Corn Exchange in Market Place Bridlington,
and one of the first machines they made is thought to be the "Shoot" pinball,
which with the end of sweet rationing proved to be a winner,
as it payed out a packet of polos each time you finished on a goal.
Below are a selection of rare photos taken in the old Corn Exchange between 1956 & 1964 when they moved to larger workshops.

Below is a selection of oak cased machines from 1959


All the machines in this range worked on the same basic electrical design
and the machines were constructed using ex GPO relays, these machines were very popular with both players and operators.













The 1960s brought a change in style, FORMICA was all the rage,
Jamiesons expanded their range of machines to include pushers and multiplayer games
pictured below are just some of those games.



















The 1970s brought with it decimalisation and a new range of designs















Over the years Jamiesons attended many trade shows both at home and abroad
below are views of some of those trade stands
