Poosh-M-Up Victory Bomber


The Northwestern Products Co. of St. Louis, formerly the Northwestern Mailbox Co., produced bagatelle games from around 1940 until 1960. These bagatelle games resembled pinball games including a spring-action ball launcher and various "pin" obstacles. Many allowed players to choose between several game options. This example mimics a bomber dropping bombs on certain German or Japanese cities, and allows for a baseball game too.
