OK, here's a hint, this photo was taken in Pennsylvania in 1946 and it shows the first something, Jasper being an elder will know, so he should not be able to answer--but what was this machine called and why is it significant? Bonus points: can you see anything unusual in the photo?
Right on both! One million points from our friend Jasper have been deposited in you account--well done. Actually women were working on these machines throughout the War, and at Nebraska Avenue in DC using the NCR "bombes" to decrypt German u-boat communications.
