To make this Web Site as attractive and lively as possible we will update this Quick Tour, step by step, as soon as the new chapters are constructed. Links from the image-map and from the table-listing will be activated in time, at each upgrade. We hope that the order of appearence will come up to your expectations.
In 1959, the entire HP production consisted of about 350 different instruments which could fit into a single photograph as shown in the previous part of this Quick Tour (1959 short-form catalog). At the end of this second period, in 1979 the HP general catolog was a 672 page, 1 inch thick, directory, listing more than 4000 different products. Even if we named this part of the web site: the "Quick Tour" and even if we limited the referenced equipment to only the most important ones, the quantity of devices significant to the measurement and computing technology evolution during this twenty year period is such that it would require a lot of time to be completed.
