Drinking Man (automation)
This machine was purchased by Mr.Zelinsky in England and shipped to its new home in San Francisco. It was painstakingly restored, while still in England, after 50 years of service. This device was built to reflect a favorite English pastime – an evening at the Pub. Put a quarter in and this marvel will actually “drink” liquid from a bottomless cup, re-circulating the liquid through his arm and back into the cup.
Great collection of automatons in San Francisco
