Master football game, 1945-1960.

This football game is a table-top, coin-operated, football goal-scoring machine which used old (pre-decimalisation) pennies to operate it. These games were popular in the period after the Second World War and throughout the 1950s. Football was a popular game at all levels at this time, despite the fact that England fared badly at international level in the 1950s.
