These pictures were taken from old magazines and therefore the quality isn't always that great. But they show you a bit of how things were in the old days.

The absolute best magazine for the C64 in Sweden was Datormagazin. These pictures were taken from it: Andrew Braybrook with friends (9/88), Chris Gray in Stockholm again (2/86), Firebird people working even harder (3/86), Ocean Software (2/87), Simon Nicol (10/87), System 3: Paul Docherty, Mark Cale, Stan Shembri (9/89), Zach Townsend (8/87).

Oberoende Computer was a great magazine that had it's origin in Denmark, but it was also translated and published in Sweden. I took these pictures from there: Abigail Darling (6/88), Andrew Braybrook, an early one (2/88), Binary Vision: Rupert Bowater & Paul Norris (5/87), Codemasters football team (1/89), Codemasters game testers (6/88), Dan Malone (5/87), Firebird development manager: unnamed (3/88), Firebird people working hard (3/88), Geoff Brown (2/87), Greve Graphics and Lars Hård (2/87), Pete Stone (5/87), Richard, U.S. Gold PR manager (2/87).

Svenska Hemdator Hacking was a so so magazine that featured all kind of homecomputer brands, which we all know doesn't work that well. They had a few nice pics though: Chris Gray in Stockholm (3/86), The three Epyx pics (5/86), John Forest/EA & David Martin/Martech (8/87), PCW Show '86 (5/86).

All the Jeff Minter pictures were taken from Allt om Hemdatorer, one the first Commodore magazines in Sweden, issue 2/84.
