I can remember one near Gillingham Station, we used to come over from Maidstone on the train to go 10 pin bowling and get a milk before walking up to the A2 !! and probably to line the stomach from the beer later

Well I'm blowed - my mum used to live in Chalk Pit Hill. Mind you, this was in the 1920's!

Fascinating to see that picture of the milk machine, there used to be one outside the shop near the Huntsman pub in Pattens Lane.

Can't place where the first pic is located. That's a steep old hill though.

That is Chalk Pit Hill, before the whole Bryant Street, Claremont Place area was redeveloped

Remember thwe milk machine in the Delce. There was another one outside Standens on the Rochester Maidstone Road at the junction with Valley View Road. 6d (real money) was the cost of a carton. Plain milk was the top button, Strawberry Milk was the middle Button and Chocolate milk the bottom button.
Ah the joys of youth.

I remember buying Bazooka Joe bubble gum way back when.

The only time I ate Nestles chocolates was when I was at a railway station.   It probably tasted better because of where it was bought.   I also liked the printing machines for luggage labels.  Though not a dispensing machine exactly there were machines that spoke your weight and issued a card as proof.

I recall that it was always something of a lottery with the gum machines, turn the handle and maybe something would be delivered, I also remember being banned from using it by my mother, as, according to her it would do alsorts of weird and mysterious things to my innards. :) It never stopped me though.
PK rings a bell.
