The 2007 REUNION.
A combined Anniversary/Reunion event to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of J Lyons agreement to provide funding for the project, in October 1947, which led to the building of LEO 1.
A change of venue for the 2007 reunion. It was held on 19 October 2007 at the Bramah Café and Museum in Southwark, London.
Possibly as a result of the change and the lower cost, we had a record turnout. A waiting list was started and eventually we had to turn people away! The reduced cost was due to a generous donation from the Association for Information Technology, assistance with administration costs from the BCS Computer Conservation Society and very reasonable charges from Don Riley, the owner of the Bramah Café and Museum and ex-Leo employee.
The event started in the 5th floor penthouse, with two interesting talks on the Edsac and Leo computers, and some of the personalities associated with them, by David Hartley of the BCS and Frank Land of the LSE, an early Leo employee. Later we moved down to the restaurant area for more reminiscing and food & drink. (An early post-reunion email from one happy guest said that “the beef stew was out of this world.
