Eric's computer museum
This is a photographic record of some of the items collected by Eric Foxley mostly during the years 1960 - 1975, assembled with generous help from others. The collection included computer hardware, leaflets, reports, books, newspaper cuttings, slides and photographs. When I retired the department wanted rid of the collection, so all of the items have been donated to the National Computer Museum at Bletchley Park and can be seen there if required.
A millimetre rule is included in the photographs where appropriate.
This is NOT in any sense trying to be a history of computing, just a summary of the parts encountered by Eric Foxley. More general information concerning the development of computing at Nottingham is included here and there.
The present site represents my first attempt at documenting my museum. There is much new material which is yet to be added to the web site, and existing material could be improved. Suggestions, additions and correction of information is always welcome by email to Eric.
When I retired the department wanted rid of all these items. They have now been given to the National Computer Museum at Bletchley Park.
