These 12 examples showed me 2 things, 1) Had no idea these item went as far back in history as they did. 2) Shows how far we have come since the firsts of these items.

I’m so blessed that I live in the era of VHS, laser disc, floppy disc, walkman, typewriter (that helped me learn hiw to type with 10 fingers) and to the era of digital now.

It's a lifetime experience that I have seen the beginnings and end of these gadgets most of which have been rendered obsolete with the progress of technology.

Key punch machine; submit your decks of cards to be run for computer science class Spring semester, 1969. Card reader to read the cards submitted, main frame in its climate controlled room to run the program so submitted and read.

Paper tape machines and tape input machines. Used these in 1973 for my first computer course. Key punch machines and card readers. Went back to college in 1981 and these were in use.
