I was looking in a photo folder this afternoon that was labeled “Summer School, 1964-68.” I’d never bothered with it before–it’s crammed full of contact sheets and negatives so it’s hard to work up the will to deal with it. But I had a moment and I was already poking around in the general vicinity so I just started idly flipping through a few of the sheets. As I did, something caught my eye: it was unmistakably the panels of the R1. Off I headed to the scanner and, thrillingly, this is what emerged:
There are several pictures on the sheet of Marty Graham showing a group of high school students around the computer room. We don’t have very many pictures of the R1 so this is just delightful. But what I’m curious about is that in most of the images the students aren’t looking at Graham:
So what are they looking at? Anybody? Also is there anything here to date the photos more specifically?
Bonus: I smell a trap.
Note: I’ll be traveling the rest of the week. I plan on posting as usual but circumstances may well veer out of my control. We’ll see.
