This 8" x 10" black and white photograph shows four men with a ComputerLand poster behind them and a continuous feed matrix printer in front of them. James Egan is the man on the right. The other men are likely his three partners, Joseph Alfieri, Robert Kurland, and Thomas Vandermeulen.
James Egan, Joseph Alfieri, Robert Kurland, and Thomas Vandermeulen of Facks Computer, Inc. were the owners of the first ComputerLand store in Manhattan.
ComputerLand was a nationwide chain of retail computer stores. They opened their first store in 1976 in Hayward, California. By 1990 most stores had closed and in early 1999 the company officially disbanded.
