Description of Photograph

Photograph (original print) of the LEO I chassis for the Auxiliary Control Console, later called the Operators Console.

This image appears in the interactive plan for our Virtual LEO I installation, p25.

The caption written on the back of the print is in LEO historian Peter Bird's handwriting, indicating the Fantl prints were originally from his collection but were at some point separated before they were given to the archive.
