The Powerhouse Museum's totalisator

Posted by Bob Doran: I was recently at the Powerhouse Museum to study some archives. The Principal Science curator, Matthew Connell, graciously took the time to drive me to the museum’s storage facility in North Sydney to look at some totalisator items.  More on those later. For now, note that the Powerhouse Museum has the best display on computing history in this hemisphere – well worth a visit. This  includes exhibits on the totalisator. Matthew describes one of his favourite items in this video from the ABC.
