Amstrad PC2286

This machine was used by a member of staff at Queen Mary's College for a number of years, then given to Grapevine. At Grapevine it was used for first for editing pages, then in one of the terminals, until it was replaced by a 386. I was given it in 1996, when the cupboard it was being kept in was emptied, to be used for storing stationary.
