X-Ray /machines in Clarks

Didn't know they lasted that long. Wouldn't be surprised if they're all still in use in the NHS, with the casings taken off and serving as hospital x-ray machines.

 :) It's a wonder any of us survived, but the x-ray machines in Clarks were still in use when my eldest 2 boys were young, they were fascinated by them, and they're now 45 and 41.
Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life tryi

Does anyone rember the foot x-ray machines that Clark's had for looking at your feet to size them up? I loved them. One stood on a step and looked down through a short tube and could see the green skeleton of one's feet, with parent and shop assistant looking down similar tubes on either side. Then someone banned them because they were radio-active.
