Welcome to NCR Mosaics!
It's always interesting to realize, that the subject you think you know could have new aspects, you even can't imagine. Surfing the Net for the NCR-related materials I discovered a lot of fantastic facts. Here are just some of them.
Can you imagine, that there still exists one of the series of three fireless locomotives built in 1913 for the National Cash Register Plant in Dayton, Ohio? These steam locomotives had no firebox, they operated off of a steam charge from a stationary boiler. The result - healthy and clean environment.
The Poem 'Of a National Cash Register' has been written in 1920 by Thomas Burke - a very good writer of the Edwardian era.
The National Cash Register Company has been involved in the very special project during WWII - Enigma - which played a central role in the Battle of the Atlantic.
During the late 1970s NCR had a chip fab located near Dayton, Ohio, the original home of the Wright brothers. NCR engineers drew a miniature replica of the airplane that the brothers flew in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina and placed this rendition on one of their RAM chips.
You can find these and other interesting facts at this site. In case you know more of them and want to share them with others, just let me know.
