punch card 1974 EX

An old-fashioned computer 80-column punch card with a line of FORTRAN on it, as written by the photographer at the City College of San Francisco. (CCSF) Taken in 1974 (slide processed in April) by a Honeywell Pentax SP1000 with a SMC Takumar 55mm ƒ2 lens on Kodak Ektachrome-X., process E-4. Mounted slide scanned into computer by an HP G4010.
