Research comments: This is one of the earliest photographs from the development of the first LEO computer. The LEO Chronicle states that on 8th March 1949 "a small workshop is set up in the lodge of St. Mary's College to prepare experimental circuits.". This is likely a photograph of that workshop. Circuit diagrams can be seen pinned on the walls. (LM)
