Research comments: This photograph shows three key members of the LEO I team: Gordon Gibbs was an engineer who specialised in the input/output mechanisms, Derek Hemy was the first LEO I programmer, and Ernest Lenaerts was the earliest LEO engineer.

The rolls of what look like paper that are suspended from ducting near the ceiling are an enigma; we have no idea what they were for. (LM)
