Description

The object is part of the IBM 7094. It is the third of three in this collection. The front of the unit has a small grey panel at the top left corner with four control buttons and two switches. Above the switches there are two stickers, which read "Channel A" and "Frame 06." The upper right portion is a yellow panel with a stepped profile. The bottom half of the front has one gray door, the other and two missing doors. The single door opens on hinges to reveal four bays held in place by four pivoting latches. The left and right sides are open revealing numerous wired connections. Cables and two forward hinging connectors are visible at the rear of the machine, which has one door on the left side. A numerical counter is still tethered to the main machine by two cords. The counter says, "017099." An extra bracket is stored on the pallet with this artifact.
