Woman at Teletype Keyboard

teletype

This black and white image dated from 1970 was used to publicize the PDP-8/E minicomputer, advertised to fit in a small office. Here we see a woman as the user of the device, however note that in this time women were often regulated to more clerical code work. Read more about these computer girls here.

You can find this image as an artifact at the Computer History Museum, catalog number 102619005. For more information visit their website.
