Kids book about computers from 1971 scanned and posted

Liz sez, "This is a scan of an entire Ladybird kids' book on the wonders of computers from 1971 (alongside the 1979 edition for comparison). Ladybird were (and are) a fantastic publisher of slim childrens' books in the UK; thirty years ago, many of us were taught to read by Ladybird, and most of my childish impressions about Vikings, submarines and the baby Jesus were formed by them.

"How It Works . . . The Computer is really charming. Ladies with anachronistic hairstyles and elegant manicures are furiously inputting data and slotting tapes into readers, while men in suits and glasses hack, hack, hack the night away on machines you would need a small cottage to house."


(Thanks, Liz!)
