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 >>>

Calculating the wages for the staff of J Lyons and Co


Description of Photograph

Photograph dated 1953 by Bert Hardy/Picture Post/Hulton Archive/Getty Images. The Getty caption states 'Calculating the wages for the staff of J Lyons and Co using an electronic calculator which looks just like a typewriter. The machine produces the information punched out on to a tape. Original Publication: Picture Post - 7580 - Electronic Brain - unpub.'

Judging by the shelving structure behind the woman, we believe this photograph may have been taken in the data prep area of the calculator (LEO 1) room at Cadby Hall. Photograph 79 in our LEO photo app (also taken in 1953) shows the same structure on the wall, entitled LEO Timetable.
