The History of Computing

Black Marble took a trip down technology memory lane with a visit to the National Museum of Computing.  Black Marble proudly sponsor this important organisation – which is showcasing the pioneering work of the first computer developers who cracked the Enigma codes right through the growth of the personal computer to the present day technology boom.
