Description

This is a black and white image of several IBM type 80 punched card sorters in the foreground. Some of the punch card readers are variations. Hanging on the wall in the background are several wall clocks and job recorder time punch clocks as well. All the clocks seem to have the same time set at 12:11. The setting looks like a museum display room as there are rope barriers set up. Light is coming from the left side of the image. Stamped on verso side is "818253".
