Caption: Historical computing. Students working with a large computer during lessons in a Soviet engineering school. The vast size is due to the computer using thermionic valves in banks - the ends of these are visible in the large cabinets. Photographed in 1959 at the Moscow Power Engineering Institute, Russia.
