From old Dig­i­tal age

Ayrshire Post - - MEMORY LANE -

DEC ( Dig­i­tal Equip­ment Com­pany) brought a new di­men­sion to Ayr.

Life was op­ti­mistic, thou­sands were em­ployed on high pay, and the town was jump­ing. It seemed ev­ery sec­ond car was an XR2 from a Dig­i­tal staffer. Look at the ar­chaic ma­chines in this pic from Septem­ber 1986. Left to right Jim Man­der­son, JL Arnott, Ken Mann, Prof AF Newell and Mr D Lawrence, the big boss at Dig­i­tal at the Mosshill plant. Those were the days!
