Peter Baker: Reminiscence
Peter Baker, Operator, then Programmer, Tote Investments.
From 1962 to 1964 I worked as a Saturday job in the Lyons Tea Shop in Dalston. On getting my A Levels I joined Tote Investors Limited in New Bridge Street near Ludgate Circus London. I was interviewed by Alan Williams and was offered and accepted the job as one of the first 4 operators of their soon to be LEO III computer. After 8 months operating I took an aptitude test and became a programmer.
I left to join Matthew Hall & Co Ltd on 21st November 1966 to work as a programmer on an ICL 1901. I stayed with them through various mergers and take-overs until my retirement in 2006 at which time I was an Information Manager working on large offshore OIL and Gas projects for Clients like Shell, BP, Elf, Total, Marathon Oil etc.Date : Unknown
