Banda machines

Memories of primary school, where only the senior year were allowed to use the machine to copy the school newsletter - just like in the wiki article. The smell and the purple ink will never fade from my memory.

By the time I moved up to secondary school (1980) there was a photocopier outside the secretaries office - but no way were any kids allowed anywhere near it!

Six years later I was at Uni and we had computers and HP laser printers - technology marched on quickly in those days.....

I always thought it was a Bandex or Bandola machine, but maybe the memory of names is not as good as the memory of smells and colours.
