Back in the 1970's I was a customer engineer in the IBM Raleigh NC branch... and fondly remember working on a lot of the "iron" you have pictured!

Awesome! Do you have any pictures of old kit? Especially of machines in different colours... would love to add to my collection.

Unfortunately no.... back in those days IBM and our accounts really frowned on bringing a camera onto the raised floor. I do remember we had books at the branch, which pictured all of the available systems in "glamor shots" similar to some in this blog post. I wish I had the fore sight to have saved some of these books, as we trashed them each year when the new books arrived!

Glamour shots! Sadly I think your experience is the same for a lot of people...
