Science Museum trip
« on: August 29, 2019, 11:28:51 PM »
Some of you lot are old farts like me and might appreciate some of these retro computer photo's I took at the Science museum last weekend. Had to spread over three posts as there's an 8 attachment limit. Not all of these might be computers, by the way. I couldn't resist the photo of that Chopper bike, for example :-)

Wow! some lovely retro stuff there. Nice to see the original Cray and how much crazy wiring it had :o

Ahh, great to see the TI-99/4A, BBC and Commodore PET. We had the BBC & PET at our school and I loved mode 7 on the BBC for it's text speed. We also had a C64 which ended up in computer club playing Chiller for weeks on end.
Until the next time...
