    Well I worked at Refuge Assurance, Manchester, England and we had a Honeywell H3200 with that sort of disk drive. They were 20Mb and the glass top slid back. Had a smashing experience when an electrician dropped a fluorescent starter choke onto a spinning drive. It was toughened glass and the "crumbs" flew every where.

    The tape drives are ICT/ICL units shown here

    I suspect the system is an ICL 1900 series machine. Jitze has photos of a ICL 1904 system here where the disk drives are visible. There are other photos on the web.

    So tell me what I've won, Johnny...
