1933 Pacific Amusement Co. Contact pinball

Description: Contact, Pacific Amusement Co. (PamCo), 11/33, first game to use electric kickers instead of just gravity to propel the steel ball. Also first game to use an electric bell. First game designed by Harry E. Williams (who started Williams Manufacturing in 1944.) To be honest, it wasn't really the first game to use electricity (bagatelles used electricity first.) But Contact was the first game to do some interesting things with electricity, and certainly popularized the idea enough that all the other pinball makers copied the concept. Electro mechanical pinball.
