This history page contains a photograph, which is one of several belonging to the photo gallery pages, which are part of several pages relating to the invention of the world's first automatic totalizator in 1913 and Automatic Totalisators Limited, the Australian company founded in 1917 to develop manufacture and export these systems.
Hialeah Stand where Julius Tote is operating
This is the stand at the Hialeah racetrack in Miami where the first Automatic Totalisator's system was installed in America in 1932. The Julius tote is in operation in this photograph and the punters can be seen on both floors of the stand queued up purchasing tickets at the windows where the Ticket Issuing Machines (TIMs) of this system are in operation. This system had 110 TIMs. It looks like this photo was taken from the roof of the Julius Tote machine room. The building housing the machine room with Barometer Indicators on the side can be seen in the fourth photograph of the Hialeah Racetrack in Miami 1932 section of the Photo Gallery.
