Lamson Carriers were used in department stores from the 1880s to the 1950s to carry cash from the sales counter to the cashier via an overhead wire. They were used before cash registers were invented and replaced the need to have children running from the sales counter to the cashier. The model in the film is a basket carrier, which would carry the merchandise for wrapping and the cash in a leather purse. It is very likely the only working example in existence. I also have a cash cup carrier which I am about to instal in a jazz club I run, and which will be used to carry a can of beer from the bar to the band. You can email me on roy@seatads.net.au
