Hollerith Reproducer Type 202

This is a British Tabulating Company, Hollerith Reproducer. This would have been supplied by IBM in the US. It was found at a shop just outside Liverpool in Oct 2008. It had been there for 10 years at least. Its a machine, probably from the 1940's. Note the 1930's legs! Its very rusty.

Its a very rare machine, maybe the only one left. It takes punch cards and reproduces them with fixed changes (I think). You can see pictures of a very similar machine in ENIAC photos.
