Cross Town pinball machine. Spring Lake Arcade

The "World's Oldest" Penny Arcade. A fantastic little collection of old, mostly still working arcade games, some dating back to the 1920s -- and all still for the original price! Really deserves a better write-up than I can afford to give at this time.
