Birthplace of Silicon Valley. Garage used by William R. Hewlett and David Packard to make their first electronic product, so founding Silicon Valley, the world's first high-technology region. Hewlett & Packard studied at Stanford University. They followed Stanford professor Frederick Terman's advice that graduates should found their own companies locally rather than move away to join established corporations. Working from this garage, they designed devices that could pick up sounds electronically in 1938. Founding a company with only $538 in 1939, their audio oscillators were a commercial success. Photographed at 367 Addison Avenue in Palo Alto, California, USA.
