Based on the 1951 UK gaming computer Nimrod (For the UK 1951 Festival of Britain):

some kids in a UK school in Exeter sat down and built a Nimitron gaming computer as a class project. Amazing stuff again, the first mini gaming computer made in England.

There's some text going with the picture, it's in German though, I'm not gonna bother posting it.
