The Starscroll Horoscope Vending Machine

If you were in any department store or local bar in the late 1970s and early '80s, you definitely remember these.

They were vending machines that for 25¢ (50¢ later), gave you a monthly horoscope. Just twist the middle knob to your sign, plunk in your money and out came this neat little scroll. (Make sure you twisted the middle knob to your sign's scrolls, and make sure your sign's scrolls were still in stock BEFORE you plunked your money in.)

And out came this neat little scroll.

They disappeared by the early '80s.
