Columbia University Machine Room Collage


Collage by Bob Resnikoff for the CUCCA 20th Anniversary poster. Top left: the detached IBM 360/91 console with some of its innards showing underneath, about 1980. Top right: a few of the 2000+ storage cells of the IBM Mass Storage System (MSS, 1982). Bottom left: part of the IBM mainframe disk farm. Bottom right: an operator (tentatively identified as Bill Scolazi) at the IBM 7094 console with lots of 9-track tape drives in the background, about 1966. (Not to scale.)
