Description

This Gibson model A14 ticket machine was owned by a London bus conductor and used to issue tickets to passengers. It was carried on a wide strap around the neck, leaving both hands free to operate the machine. A number of different tickets could be issued for different priced tickets. This machine has been personalised with the addition of an elastic band on the turning handle, to give a better grip.
