Research comments: This photograph of the 'calculator room' at Cadby Hall is one of the few that show this part of the room. from this direction It looks to have been taken from the doorway next to LEO's power supply (the end of which can just be seen on the right hand side of the photo). The area eventually housed all of the peripheral equipment needed to input and output data to/from LEO.

Relaying the wooden floor involved raising it to accommodate cabling underneath. The room is on the second floor and the windows faced out over the enclosed 'quad' around which the offices of WX block (the admin block) were located. (LM)
