The IBM Personal Computer on display in a window in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. Actually – my window, back in the days when we still had our office in Oderberger Strasse 2. So next to the IBM you also see a mini DIY TV-Tower which can be downloaded from here.
Another photo of my old IBM PC together with the modem we used to connect to the internet, which basically did not exist back in the days.

Oh how I loved to play around with the contrast and brightness controls – and it was just so intuitive. Today no computer screen I know has extra buttons to control brightness and contrast – but back in the days, at least the screen of the IBM PC had this basic set of controls.
A ‘portrait’ of the IBM Personal Computer – the original PC – my first computer. What a beauty! Two floppy drives, one RGB screen – and loaded with a promising 64 kBytes of RAM. We also had an Acoustic Coupler which would connect me to the world whenever I liked – although there was not much to connect to.
