"Have you forgotten anything?" - Dayton - IBM shop card - 1928
A reminder that IBM (International Business Machines) started off in a much more mundane way as the suppliers of Dayton shop equipment such as bacon slicers, coffee grinders, cash registers and weighing machines. In a way I suppose there is a link between tabulation and cash registers and the early 'computing' machinery based on punch cards, etc. This card is a reminder of those early days - posted in London to a grocers in Hagley Road, Birmingham (UK) in 1928 to advertise Dayton IBM equipment and designed to be hung on the shop door or exit to ask "Have you forgotten anything" of purchasers. In a way it is an interesting item of the earliest history of a company whose products have shaped the world we live in. The typeface is also interesting - as in odd - I don't recognise it.Cafe neon lights
Neon tube signs are produced by the craft of bending glass tubing into shapes. A worker skilled in this craft is known as a glass bender, neon or tube bender. The neon tube is made out of 3-4' straight sticks of hollow glass sold by sign suppliers to neon shops worldwide who hand produce them into individual custom designed and manufactured lamps. Manufacturing is a cottage industry and an eclectic art, in most cases, often a small family business. All neon tubes are hand made and labor intensive, even today, and the shop equipment is normally custom assembled from scratch by the craftsmen themselves from parts. There are many dozens of colors available. The color is chosen by the type of tubing used, and the gas filling.
