Ok, I'll try to take som pictures tonight.
Also, I'd like to elaborate regarding rack headers and why there are so
There seems to be at least 6 degrees of freedom for variation.
1. Computer family and model (e.g. PDP-8, PDP-11, PDP-11/70)
2. Rack type, the earlier shorter racks had metal headers without
rounded corners (see PDP-8/i). Lowboy racks have a slanted header
with deeper frame.
3. Intended market. Lab systems was green, industrial was blue/red. (The
PDP-12 was available in orange, blue and green)
4. Place of manufacture. The PDP-11 header had either "galway ireland"
or "maynard massachusets" printed on them (possibly other places)
5. OEM's had their own designs.
6. Specific systems packaged had their own name and color. I have a
PDP-11/34 with a blue header that says "GAMMA-11"
I'll provide examples of some of these. Others can be found online.
