Scanned by Herb Grosch from a glass slide in his collection. This is an official IBM photo, probably taken in 1948. Herb's caption: "Ken Clark featured, positive. Next, Betsy Steward 0.99 sure. In back, left, Ted Codd 0.99 sure; right, Aetna Womble, 0.30 sure. And in front, showing where they had to run the raw-card-stock roll up its ramp, part of The Prancing Stallion!!" (which converted standard punched cards to SSEC input tapes).

For elucidation of the cast of characters, see Herb's book.
