Oh gawd - just imagine having a tedious office job back in the not-so-exciting 1960s and having to wrestle with this contraption every day..
paul: i googled it when I saw it and it actually dates back to the 1930s
I went to work in a new office in the late 1960's and whilst I had what was, for the time, a modern calculator an elderly gentle man who worked for me had something similar to this. He was the only member of staff who new how to work it!!
What a wonderful machine... so much more character than its descendants...
