Burroughs Flowcharting Template


This clear plastic template has some thirty flowcharting symbols (it is unclear whether the three small circles along the bottom in fact are for flow charts). A scale of inches divided to twelfths is on the left, a scale of inches divided to tenths of an inch at the top, and a scale of inches divided to sixteenths at the bottom. Marks are in red, including a logo that reads: B Burroughs. The logo combines two that Burroughs Corporation first used in commerce in 1947 and registered in 1969.
