Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

Collection of IBM Mainframe Photographs, Late 1960s / Early 1970s

Description of Photograph

These photographs date from the late 1960s to the early 1970s.  They show mainframes being installed and in use, and some shots of buildings where the machines were presumably going to be installed.  An IBM System 360 is featured. Some have female operators.  The photographs may have been taken at IBM's Laboratory at Hursley Park, Winchester, as documents regarding this location were included in the same donation as these photographs.

The photographs are available as a PDF on request.
