[Two Men at early computers]

Description: Photograph of two men reading the printouts of an early dot-matrix printer. Reams of paper sit on a shelf underneath the printer and feeds into the machine from below. The printout feeds directly into a box that sits on the floor behind the printer. One man sits in front of the machine and the other looks over the printout from behind. In the rear of the image are reel-to-reel cabinets. On the desk at the front is an early IBM switchboard. Florescent lights are overhead, and exposed vents cool the room.

Reel-to-reel cabinets sit behind the men on the right, and a large IBM switchboard sits on a desk to the left. Exposed overhead ducts and vents are cooling the room.
