Peripherals

Peripherals by the nature are remote to the computer, but never the less play a very important part, especially in early  computing.
Input / output , Storage, Display, Sorting, these function's can all be performed by peripheral devices.
The oldest unit we have is the IBM 082 card sorter it dates from the late 40's. Another system  is the ASR33 “automatic send and receive” it was used by many company's as their main input - output terminal, through paper tape or direct terminal typing and printing.
