A flock of Italian sheep stand aside as four trucks loaded with an IBM 7070 data processing system pass en route to the Bank of Naples in 1959. IBM introduced the 7070 the year before as the first in a new line of fully transistorized mainframes. Designed to handle medium volume data processing requirements, the 7070 was used by customers in the manufacturing, banking, utilities and transportation industries. (VV2070)
