Rosemary and I visit the Cambridge alumni weekend which is held every year in late September just as the students come up to start the new year.  This year of 2010 I have some pictures from the Queens college, the old courts, the Mathematical bridge which joins the old Queens to the newer side.  After Queens, I went to the ADC theatre where there was a behind the scenes tour.

The last set of pictures should bring joy to Economists, Historians, Computer Scientists, Plumbers, Electricians and   exponents of Heath Robinson.  This is an analogue computer used by economists to model the economy using water flows.  Yes it is a Phillips machine.
