Who knew that you could buy your favorite record from a vending machine. 
Holland 1960 you plop you money in the machine and dispense your record. Did this exist elsewhere in the world?

No, but now the phrase "Grammofoon Platen Automaat" will be merrily dancing about my brain for the next few hours!  Thanks a lot! :D

This seems like it would result in very warped records in the summer.  Was this really a "thing" or more of a short-term publicity stunt?

I didn't think about the heat on the vinyl. I don't know how long it went on for. Maybe any of the members here from the Netherlands, since that where this photo is from, can shed some light on this.

Of course if it was carried out in Japan, the machine would be likely be air-conditioned...
