Hi all,

thought I'd share this with you all. While it wasn't an actual IBM convention it was organised by the President of the Sydney 102 Ring.

If anyone has problems viewing it let me know and I'll upload it elsewhere as well.

It came to me via the grandson of one of the people in the footage Herbert Haynes who can be seen pulling a rubber chicken from the handbag of his wife Nina. Grandson David found the film reel underneath his grandfathers house and had it digitised.
