Here's a couple images of an oversize postcard from the Cambridge Location.
Love that mossy vine (what is that plant called again?) jungle look, that wasn't done much in Poly pop ....probably because it was a maintenance/ cleaning/ fire safety nightmare.

The Microsoft founders, Paul Allen and Bill Gates, used to eat in the Boston location while they were writing the code for the Altair in the mid-seventies, according to an excerpt from Allen's new book in Vanity Fair:
"I neglected my job at Honeywell, dragging into the office at noon. I’d stay until 5:30, and then it was back to Aiken until three or so in the morning. I’d save my files, crash for five or six hours, and start over. We’d break for dinner at Harvard House of Pizza or get the pupu platter at Aku Aku, a local version of Trader Vic’s. I had a weakness for their egg rolls and butterflied shrimp."
Must have been inspirational.
