International Business Machines, 1966. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good A collection of photographs, primarily 3 x 4 inches, in an old Minox Print Album, documenting various IBM facilities, mostly related to final packaging of equipment. The album sleeves are coming apart, and would benefit from relocation into another format. The photos themselves are generally in good shape with good contrast. We left them in this album to preserve their order. A few images have been removed (if ever there). First section marked "IBM Poughkeepsie, September 1966", 30+ images, including many cardboard boxes after final closure with names like Friden, Doehler-Jarvis Division, Arden Farm and IBM. One appears to be a punch-card machine read to go. Next section marked "IBM Lexington, September 1966", 32+ images, including images of styrofoam like packaging, and images include typewriters (some on the end of a conveyor line), some marked IBM Electric Typewriter and IBM Selectric, some in and out of boxes. This section appears to show final packaging and how it was done - what we think are air guns, various cardboard/styrofoam packaging components, some people processing typewriters off the line, etc. The next section is marked "IBM Endicott, September 1966", 20+ images, some boxes marked "IBM Systems Manufacturing". We see what appear to be high-speed line printers, reel-to -reel tape drives, and smaller terminal printers in this group. There is also a pocket in rear with some very small negatives (a quick view appears to be more than half family images, with a few that might be manufacturing related, though what and where we can't tell. Perhaps these are clues to the owner if blown up to viewable size. In our experience photograph albums that document any portion of the computer industry are scarce on the market. These don't appear to be professional images (some of the images aren't exactly complementary from a packaging perspective) and are likely to have been taken by someone who worked there or a tour group member.
