Very nice. I really need to visit.

The power supplies in photo #6 are actually feroresonant. You can even
see the capacitor that is connected to one of the transformer windings
to help regulate the output voltage. I just replaced a failed one with
a "brand new" 40 year old one in the PDP-8/S that I am reviving.

Picture #27. Very nice KS10. Got one of those at home.
Picture #37. Memorex 677-01 disk. Also used with a Massbus adapter as
a DEC RP06. Got one of those too.
