PH-546.  This photo is well-known to most TMC collectors.  It shows a youthful Tony Faiola (actually, he's still pretty youthful!) examining the innards of a GPT-750 on the production line.  These are early production -1 '750's, and I believe this photo was taken at 705 Fennimore, a building (still standing) across the street from the company's main plant at 700 Fennimore, Mamaroneck, NY.  Many thanks to Tony for loaning me this photo! No number.  Ted Jennings enjoying a cup of coffee with two unknowns, perhaps at a trade show?

This photo, and the 2 to the right turned up recently.  All were mounted, but have no information other than "1966 Annual Meeting".  These folks are clearly stockholders, and they don't look all that happy, really... Ray de P addressing the '66 Stockholder's Meeting. I believe this is Bill Deans addressing the meeting.
