100 Years in 100 Days: A Vintage Computer at Malvern Elementary School
100 photos that define Shaker Heights.
Shaker Heights Patch is celebrating the 100 years of Shaker Heights history by creating an online scrapbook. Each day for 100 days, we'll feature a photograph that helps tell the story of Shaker Heights.
Today's photo goes back 40 years, when computers were rare wonders. The accompanying information is bare-bones: "A person using a computer at Malvern Elementary." But this computer is the ancestor of our tablets, notebooks, desktops and e-readers.
Malvern School closed in the 1980s. It's now the home of the Hanna Perkins Center for Childhood Development.
We'd love to hear stories about working on these machines. If you used a computer at Malvern, or anywhere in Shaker Heights during the 1960s and 1970s, please tell us in the comments.
You can join our celebration of Shaker Heights history. Share your memories in the comments. Or upload your photos and we'll feature them in this scrapbook. Follow #ShakerCentennial on Twitter.
