    Default Free for postage : Burroughs field engineering training center, large systems folder

    Free for postage a cool Burroughs field engineering training center large systems folder.
    Its a 3 ring folder and has usage marks and some small rust spots on the metal mechanism but still very well usable.
    Also reads Malvern, Pennsylvania on the front.

    Hiya Nigel,

    Its just the folder, nothing in it, well nothing that describes the cover
    There's just the calcomp stuff in it that I am also offering free for postage.

    Unless you want a scan/photo of the folder itself ?

    Grts, Stefan.

    Strange coincidence, I was just out last night with a friend of mine who works in that building for Unisys. Unisys is closing that building next month. RIP Burroughs!

    Hi Stefan, thanks for the clarification, I was hoping there would be some interesting printed matter don't think I need to see the plastic folder, thanks for the offer though.

    Interesting news, if your friend knows of any manuals/documents from the 1960s to early 1980s that could be rescued the Burroughs enthusiast community would be glad to learn of them.

    There are large sections of Burroughs documentation that are missing so we are keen to fill the gaps.

    thanks.

    The buildings where the mainframes were worked on, at that site were emptied out a few years ago, so I doubt that any docs are still floating around.
