What you are looking at is the backyard garage in Palto Alto, California where Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard started their company HP in 1939. These photos aren't new, but with readers sending us photos of their tech-caves, we couldn't help seeing this garage in a new light.
Compared to any modern day study, what you see here is raw and primitive. HP didn't even make computers back then - look closely in some of these photos and you can see HP's first product, an audio oscillator. Click the photo to enlarge it. Click next for the next photo.
