I think it is safe to write that this brochure is from the 1960s. The date on the ticket on the first page is 16th January 1967 and I expect this brochure would have been produced shortly after that. The track identifier is interesting, Weymouth Fair. It was one of the Massachusetts Fair Circuit. An old advertisement for Weymouth Fair reads: Pari Mutuel - Horse Racing - 9 Races Daily including Sunday - Post Time 1.45 Daily Double - Jack Kochman's Auto Thrill Show. The last racing there was in 1972.

Also note the Automatic Totalisators Limited emblem in green to the left of the Weymouth ticket near the bottom. It reads Made in Australia at the top with PREMIER in the middle and Automatic Totalisators Ltd at the bottom. Premier was the name George Julius gave to his totalisator product and this emblem appeared on most of the machinery I have seen from the Julius Tote era.
