That is the most obvious fake I have ever seen. It made its rounds on
IRC as a joke about two months ago.

It is a fake, and a very bad one at that. The worst job is the paper
coming down from the "teletype".

But isn't the typewriter a horribly stretched DECWriter? And did they
even have sprocket feed paper in 1954?

Heck, FORTRAN didn't even exist in '54, did it?

And, I mean, come on, a large <US name for boat steering wheel>?
