An automatic lunch vending machine, which carries hot and cold foods, is demonstrated, September 10, 1952 in New York by Jo Vanna, who is taking a sandwich from a slot. Gloria Loranz is at the table. The new machine, called the Lunch-O-Mat, vends hot and cold sandwiches, pies and pastries, milk, chocolate milk, juices and hot coffee. There are seven food-holding divisions, all interchangeable except that for coffee, allowing for concentration on the most popular foods in any location. So versatile is the machine that choices can be given in sandwiches and between pie and pastry. Hot sandwiches are cooked in 10 to 15 seconds by radar. Each cup of coffee is made instantaneously with cold running water. The machines are now in production and are scheduled for delivery at the rate of 100 a month in July, August and September, and 300 a month for the remainder of the year. The machine is manufactured by Statler Manufacturers Corp. and distributed by Lunch-O-Mat Corp. of America. (Photo by AP Photo)
