Colossus Mark II

 Rebuilt Colossus Mark II

The Colossus Mark II was one of the first modern computers ever built, way back in 1944, and used to break cryptographic codes intercepted by the allies. When the war was over, Winston Churchill ordered the machines to be destroyed.

Now, through the efforts of a man named Tony Sale, a working copy of the Colossus is being rebuilt in it’s historical location at Bletchley Park, which has now been turned into a museum.
