LEO Catalogue Update: Photographs, 7th August 2020

7th August 2020

Following a hiatus for some internal processing, timetable development, admin and annual leave (!), we are now adding more LEO Society material to the online catalogue.  To assist with other parts of the project, we are prioritising the extensive photographic collections for this phase of the cataloguing.


Peter Bird's photographs
Lyons and LEO historian Peter Bird (1934-2017) gathered a significant collection of research material in preparation for his book LEO - The First Business Computer  (1994).  This includes a large number of photographs - since our last update, we have added the following to our online catalogue:


Photographs of LEO I have formed a core part of the research for the virtual reality part of our project - have a closer look at the photos and what they can tell us about the first installation of LEO at Cadby Hall via the LEOvr interactive here: http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/leodev/photos/
