Here's a picture from 1966 of an IBM computer at the IBM computing center on
Manhattan (New York City, New York USA). The text for the photo says that
the computer is being used to make a payroll calculation.

Visible are 4 big-fridge-sized reel-reel tape devices, the console with
operator seated at it, and some other things in the background.

What's the computer model? Does anybody know who this guy (operator)

Just a neat photo.

It's about a 150k jpg file at this url:
