Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

61193 LEO I rack close-up (1954)

Description of Photograph

Photograph showing a close-up view of the LEO I racks, fully populated with the covers off.

This image appears in the interactive plan for our Virtual LEO I installation, p75.

Research comments: LEO I eventually had 21 valve racks, in four rows of 5 racks. The 21st rack stood on its own at the end of the row nearest the windows and was the last rack to be added. Some of the racks were labelled with their function. In this photograph the label 'STORE' can be seen on the top of the rack on the right hand side. (LM)

Collected by Alan King and donated to the LEO Computers Society archive.

Date: 1954
