Pinball in 1896?

May 26, 2013

“Pin Ball” is a fire engine originally built in 1896.  But how did they name it “pinball” when the game we know is thought to have originated around 1931?

There are a few different uses for “Pin Ball” around that time but the most likely connection I could find was a schoolyard game that appears to have originated on the east coast.
