The John Caspell Memorial Pinball Parlour

One of John’s many and varied interests was playing and maintaining pinball machines.   He worked at a pinball shop in Vancouver called John’s Jukes for several years.

When I finally got my second pinball machine up and running, my sister Allegra and I decided that: a) it now qualifies as a pinball parlour; and b) we should dedicate it to John.  So we did!  Behold, the John Caspell Memorial Pinball Parlour:

The parlour is currently housed in Burnaby, BC, Canada. If you’re interested in visiting and/or playing the machines (Bally Star Trek and Bally Xenon), leave a comment here or use the contact for the site to reach me.

  1. That’s wonderful!!! John had an acrylic header piece from a Pin Ball machine that he’d hung onto for years. We had it repaired (paint scratched etc) and framed 🙂 John used to enjoy playing a game or two at Mr Tubbs in Victoria, it’s the local ice cream parlour and arcade hang out. We’d pick up a young lad that was living with us after school and drop in for a cone and some pingy goodness !! yay
