It looks like all (or most) pins on the header are contacted with
traces. There is a 24 pin ribbon cable plunged in, but only 4 wires are
used. The other 20 wires are open, not connected and covered with
isolating tape.

Thats what I suspect. As said I rescued a Transputer system from that
place some years back. It was basically a generic, modular box (For
double eurocard like PCBs? Can't remember.) with some sort of "carrier
boards" that had INMOS TRAM modules on them. There was no disk or the
like. So I suspected there must be some sort of "head" to boot and
control that box full of Transputers. It only took some years to show
up. :-)

p.s.: The TRAM modules and carrier boards went to a Transputer
enthusiast and are in good hands.
