We now have a lighted sign outside our new room.
The picture below is of a sign that shows an IBM 1401 in use.
This sign is 10 feet wide and 40 feet tall.
You have to stand close to the sign and look up to see the rest of the sign!
And as if that was not enough, they painted 1401 on the wall in large numbers.
As you enter the room, the whole left wall is a picture of an IBM data center in Toronto Canada.
An IBM 1401 is shown on the left side of the image.
And in case you did not know why you were in the room.....
One of the signs on the back wall talking about the beginning of the IBM 1401
More information about the IBM 1401
A tribute to the volunteers that brought the machines back to life.
The top picture is that of Bob Erickson fixing a very small wire in a bank of 1401 memory.
A private demonstration was held by Robert Garner, Ed Thelen and Stan Paddock for the VIP 1401 visitors and their families in the new room on Sunday night, November 17, 2013.
The list of people visiting is as follows
