Mechanical push button cash register

Mechanical push button cash register

A very old push button mechanical cash register sitting in the pool area. This machine apparently was still in service during somewhat modern times, judging by the asset tag in the upper right corner. Also, I thought it was strange that this registered featured buttons "A", "B", "D", "E", and "H". There was another alphabetizing oddity later in this gallery. Anyone know what these stand for?

Groups. Cashiers would know to ring all of one group on one key - in this case a through h. Drinks may be A, Food may be B, gifts from the gift shop on C, etc. Allows a way to track purchases when you pull a X or Y tape.

Sometimes it was used for which cashier was using it.

Interesting, thanks for the info

On this machine, I think A-H were cashiers and Roman numerals I-IV (on the right) were departments or groups.
