Memorabilia and other Electrons!

There is much Acorn memorabilia from the Electron-era that still survives today! Check out some Elks living with other folks too.


A good example of this are the badges that were produced as promotional items by Acornsoft, for their various titles.

The badge on the end was a promotional one for the BBC Micro; do we know if any exist for the Electron too?

Of course, memorabilia of today can be yesterdays promotional material of all kinds; this leaflet was one that advertises the new Acorn Electron in all its' wonder and glory!

These pins belong to Dave the Drummer; one was given to him by the head of Acorn at one of the shows!

Cameron Bell kindly provided these photographs of his collection; I'm intrigued by the top badge in the middle photograph as it is in a different style to the other Acornsoft ones I have seen. Can anyone shed any light on it?

Here's an Electron that Mike Keeling has had since 1986! Serial 02-ALA01-00-43185.

I am exceptionally jealous of the fact that he had the Master RAM Board fitted in '86.... It took me three around three decades to finally get the MRB into my own Elk!

May I present to you 07-ALA01-46233, belonging to Stephen Preston.

As you can see, this Elk is seriously souped-up and features a Turbo board, AP6, AP5 (new design, RH), external sound, MMC, Mega Games Cart (Retro Hardware) and CFIDE Hard Drive!
