    All photos were produced by IBM and distributed by IBM.
    Photos are "original" in the sense that they are not reproduction of photos distributed by IBM.
    The actual year the pictures were taken in not known; however all pictures were distributed before 1980 and none of them looks much older.
    IBM internal photo part numbers are shown on all the photos but one.
    All photos are 8 in by 10 in ( + or - 1 in ).
    All photos are in the condition shown and have, in addition, 3 holes on one side to accomodate holding in a 3 rings binder. All photos are in plastic sheet protectors ( 2 / protector ). The "6 Photos with minor damages not accounted for" listed above is to compensate for any unfavorable condition that had not been specified if any.
    Four photos are duplicates; they are shown in BOLD in the
    above list and they are counted in the total.
    Digital scans are available and will be sent upon
    request ( about 5 Mb for low resolution and 50 Mb for high
    resolution ).

    Have you scanned the entire set of photos?

    Are you selling these or just offering duplicates?

    I suspect the CHM might be interested in some or all of these. . .

    The photos were sold as a set.

    I think they will be very well taken care of.

    Thanks to The Vintage Computer !

    This was from before my time here, and I'd love to have a copy of these in my archive as well if they're available.
