Computers from Olden Times

The Computer
Carey
1971

I fell in love with this series of books when I lived in the UK. My kids loved these books when they were young.

Of course everyone of a “certain age” will recognize the equipment. How long has it been since anyone has seen a keypunch machine? This is the kind of thing that just makes me feel old. I doubt if anyone under 40 recognizes anything in this book.

I think we can all agree that computers have changed quite a bit since 1971.

In the meantime, enjoy this stroll down memory lane.

Sheepish Info

TV Vet  Sheep Book
TV Vet
1972

Think of this as DIY manual for the sheep farmer. Evidently, this is part of a series of books on animal husbandry.  I am really curious on the TV aspect of this series. Perhaps this is an offshoot of an all-farm channel?

Of course, veterinary medicine ages, just as any science or health book. Having worked in a semi-rural area library, this type of material is often considered a core subject. Maybe a university library would think this is worth something, but public libraries can let this antique go.
