Jon and I both work at The Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont. Each year CCS has a fellow, and last year it was the Belgian cartoonist Max de Radiguès. Max appears a few times in Drop Target #1, and played pinball with us almost every day last year.
Max would often mention an old pinball machine that his Dad owned, and a few weeks ago Max visited his father in the south of France and he took a few pictures of it, which he forwarded to me and Jon. It appears to be a 1935 Par Golf which is a pre-flipper machine. Thanks Max!
