Paper Tape - 5 Hole, CSIRAC Computer, Untitled, 1959-1964 Object Reg. No: HT 9382

Summary:
Paper tape program, part of a collection of paper tape programs used for input to CSIRAC. This program was probably an output tape of some kind.
Description:
12 hole paper tape is generally of good quality but the 5 hole paper tape seems to be of variable quality; some tapes even fall apart or crumble. This item is of good quality. It is important therefore to keep it. There must have been a change in manufacture that caused the change in quality.
