Within the walls of this historic building in the ghost town of Virginia City, Montana, lies the remains of a hideous fortune telling machine.
The gypsy fortune telling machine is one the last of its kind and it is one that speaks the fortune when you feed it a nickel.
There is a nice write up on the machine on a history site. http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/12601
You can read about the wrangling over the machine by collectors and other people who wish to make money by becoming the owner.
In the meantime, this store front is part of the ghost town of Virginia City, Montana, where I happened to find myself one fine winter day. In addition to the old mining city, the next door neighbor, Nevada City, Montana, is another wonderfully rich ghost town.
