Caption: Early computer. Hand operating the console of an IBM 360/195 computer from 1971. This console was used to give information on the operation of the machine. The console summarised how the computer was performing and what types of jobs were running on it. It also helped diagnose faults when the machine broke down. The computer processed 10-15 million instructions per second (MIPs) & had a storage memory of 2 megabytes. The computer was installed at the Atlas Computer Laboratory (part of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory), Britain, at a cost of 2.5 million British sterling (1971 price). It was mainly used for particle physics research.
