About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1990. Collection of 140 vintage silver gelatin and resin-coated press and reference photographs relating to computers and computer history. Every photograph with a dated Reference Library stamp on the verso, and many with mimeo snipes affixed to the versos. Dates span from the 1960s through the 1990s, although the balance date from the 1980s and 1990s.

A varied and substantial collection, spanning computer use in homes, schools, businesses, and other aspects of American society. Included are images relating to calculators and palmtop computers, computer programs and applications, early "touchscreen" technology, CD-ROMs and disk drives, computer animation and screensavers, computer games and chess, printing devices, video teleconferencing, computer literacy classes, and computer-related merchandise. Collection also includes several photographs of computer and display manufacturing, and performance and endurance tests.

All told, an impressive gathering of photographs relating to computer history from an important period of transition in both computer use and technology.

Photographs range in size from 12 x 7.75 inches to approximately 5 x 5 inches, with the balance measuring 8 x 10 inches. Near Fine to Very Good plus, with light edgewear on some photographs, and resin-coated photographs evenly age toned.
