Description

A piece of fixed store mesh from the Manchester University Computer, which was constructed in a joint venture with Ferranti Ltd, becoming available in 1962. ATLAS had a combined storage system which gave the impresion of a much larger and faster main store than was physically available. This was not incorporated into commercial computers until ten years later.
