I went and looked at the slides on my PDP-8/e in a standard DEC
full-height rack, and they are identical (down to the labels) to those
shown in the pix that Dave took.  The 8/e system that I have (8/e, PC04
reader/punch, 1 RK05, 1 RX02, 2 serial ports, Timeshare/Memory
Expansion, 16K Core, 8K MOS memory) is original as configured by DEC, so
I'm sure that the slides for the 8/e are the correct ones.
