How about a poster with a period photo of an office floor all operating
from the same Prime machine?  That would tell a more accurate picture.  The
mini/mainframes were stored in a closed room, no one saw them.  They were
temp controlled spaces with raised floors.  GIven you don't have that, it
would make more sense to depict visually what was really going on rather
than make up a scene that never really existed.
