I can't help either, but one place where pictures and descriptions of long-dead peripherals
can be found are in the 'New Products' pages of DATAMATION.
Every time I look through these I am amazed by the variety, type and number of manufacturers
of gear eg. key-to-tape, high-speed line printers and other mundane yet expensive 1970s business
equipment that was rarely advertised in later more consumer-oriented journals such as BYTE.
