This 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, the company founded to develop, manufacture and export these systems.
This is an image of the queues on the first floor of 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 and the punters can be seen queued up purchasing tickets at the windows where the Ticket Issuing Machines (TIMs) of this system are in operation. This system had 110 TIMs. Through the upper section of the second archway from the right can be seen the Julius Tote barometer odds indicators. These indicators are on the side of the machine room of this system. On the ground floor of this building can be seen more selling windows.
