There is an IO Selectric of the early type there.  Anyone know if it is 
the 1620 console variety?

Hopefully nudging Billy Pettit in case it would work for what he needs 
for a project.

No idea whether this will work or not, but here is a link to the image:

There is a similarly derived link to the Dec books.  it is the last 
photo / item in the gallery.

I would hate to have to be in Brentwood @ 8am Saturday morning, but, it 
is not out of the question for the right incentive.
