Welcome to Insert Coin - Pictures - last update 13 June 2005

Throughout the project I've endeavoured to photograph each stage, primarily as a reference point - as they say pictures say a thousand words. Many times I've referred back to the first photos I took when working on the wiring and when trying to reassemble something. Also, it would make a pretty bland website without them.

The pictures on this page are the same ones that appear throughout the blog, but are listed here in chronological order (the oldest being first), with short descriptions for easier reference.
