This page contains a photograph which is one of several belonging to the photo gallery pages which are part of several pages relating to the invention of the world's first automatic totalizator in 1913 and Automatic Totalisators, the company founded to develop, manufacture and export these systems.

This is an early workshop photograph. This is probably the Newtown factory which was located at 146-158 Alice Street Newtown. This is an assembly section manufacturing Julius Tote Ticket Issuing Machines. These are electromechanical input output devices. Electromechanical computing on an industrial scale! This is long before the advent of OH&S and considerations like posture becoming important.
