IBM's Product line up, circa 1938

OK, no controversy in this post, just some nostalgia.  In looking through some documents that belonged to one of my wife's now deceased relatives we came across a 1938 IBM Endicott, N.Y. Factory Tour Brochure.  I'll post some amusing copy from it in a future post, but for now here are some IBM product images taken from it.  Interesting to note that the operators pictured are predominantly females, and that you still see Card Type Attendance Recorders like the one pictured, today.

Comments on what some of these machines (such as the Ticketograph) did are most welcome.
