We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Sharp CS-1151 Compet

Sharp Corporation, of Japan.

Throughout the years that electronic calculators have been manufactured Sharp has been a pioneer at the forefront of their development.

Tokuji Hayakawa established a metal works in Tokyo in 1912, and in 1915 invented the "Ever-Sharp Pencil", from which the "Sharp" name is derived. In the 1920s the company started manufacture of radio sets, and followed on in the 1950s with the manufacture of television receivers.

The Hayakawa Electric Industry Company, as it was called, became more involved in electronics, and in 1964 produced one of the first transistorised electronic desktop calculators, the first of Japanese manufacture, the Sharp CS-10
 
Our model is belived to be a 1976 model with a serial number of 49014612
