Lyons Electronic Office was a brave start for a company that ran corner tea shops, they decided in 1949 to investigate the computer for their office functions. The design was based on the EDSAC. The public anouncement of its running in production was in April 1954 but it had at that time been under test and doing some government work for 18 months.
