    I remember these Chiclet Gum Machines!
    You’d put a penny in the slot for the flavor gum you wanted then spin the large metal knob and two Chiclets would drop down in the holder in a
    a small cardboard box. They were on almost every column on the subway platforms. These machines were red and they had a mirror on them. I remember they were in the subways in the 50’s and in the 60’s up till around 1964.
