This machine was in service at the Roger's Park Presbyterian Church in Chicago. After a brief hiatus in the church attic, it made it's way to a church worker's home in the early 80's.A centerpiece of the family kitchen, the machine was well-cared for and lightly used until the early 90's. Since then it has been stored high and dry in a basement without any use. Plugged it in on June 24, 2018 and in 20 minutes the cold air was a-flowin'! On the less-awesome side, there is no lock or key, a couple small nickle-sized dents near the lock area and a few scratches on the white paint near the top of the machine on the back. Comes with a bonus set of authentic bottles that fit the machine. MORE PICS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
