It's a bit surprising to see how few pieces of old peripherals have
survived.  Sometime around 1985, we had a VAX 11/750 driving two CDC
(MPI) big 1500 (IIRC) LPM printers.  I don't know whatever became of
them, but we couldn't have been an isolated instance.

It seems that more CPUs have survived than the accompanying peripherals.
 This, in spite of installations with oceans of disk and tape drives,
for example.
