Caption: Early calculating machines. US government clerks using calculating machines to establish the bonus to which World War I veterans were entitled. This arose from the World War Adjusted Compensation Act of May 1924, which resulted in over 3 million military service certificates issued to a combined value of over 3 billion US dollars at the time, which was paid out in 1936. Photographed on 24 November 1924, at the Bonus Bureau, Computing Division, Washington DC, USA. The photograph is from the National Photo Company Collection.
