Rebuilding Edsac

Edsac, an early UK computer, built in the 1940s to analyze data is being rebuilt, but some of the parts are missing. One chunk was found recently. It had been sold at auction and owners recognized it as a computer part after PR about the rebuild. More parts were likely sold at auction and the rebuilders hope still exist.  The setup reminds me of my dad's big tube-filled radio from the 1930s.
