The story of computers
In 1970 a man named Charles T. Medow wrote a book called The Story of Computers. "How much of a story was there in 1970?" you may ask? And Loungers, we can't really tell you that. But what we can tell you is there were some pretty exceptional images in this book. And luckily Retronaut has tracked them down.

Apart from the obvious laugh out loud at how big those fuckers were, these images were used to explain how computers worked and how they could be use. Look, even a child can use them! Look, there's a woman learning how to use it from an old man! There's a built in ashtray!
