Christine Arrowsmith was inspired at the age of 10 by a book from the public library about the Lyons Electronic Office. Thereafter, she was clear she wanted to work with computers and achieved that in spite of ill health that often held her back in both her education and job prospects.
Nevertheless she has worked and been consumed by interest in IT. Christine developed a career as a freelance Systems Analyst, as well as being employed by several early adopters of office technology and iconic firms such as ICL and F International.
Since retirement from employment she has continued to pursue her passion as a member of the BCS and the Computer Conservation Society, and manning the “Baby” exhibit at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.
