Schermack “Talking Salesmen”

Schermack “Talking Salesmen” Vending Machines (1929). The machine used a “continuous bucket” system, which allowed different sizes/types of products to be vended. A phonograph was incorporated in the machine, so a short message, such as a compny slogan, would play when the crank was turned. These machines were invented and patented by the inventor Joseph J. Schermack, my great-great uncle. He is best known for his postage stamp vending machines and private stamp perforations. #familyhistory #detroit #detroithistory #schermackcompanies #schermackgenealogy #stampvendingmachine #stampcollection #stampcollector #genealogy #falknerjarrell #vending #vendingmachines #schermack #josephjschermack #talkingsalesmen #talkingrobot #talkingrobots #postalhistory #vendinghistory #1920s #1920sfashion
