Back around late 63 or early 64, my Uncle, who lived in PA., took me over to the Math Department of UPA. There was a UNIVAC system in the basement that they were working and, I saw those neat V.T. in vertical rows glowing `plus, the mercury memory drum~It was located in an opening big enough to walk inside of. KEWL~
About all I remember of it was that it was huge and, took up the entire basement level. That's it.
Slipping back into the 21th century...lol
