We've just found this fantastic collection of old photos of the original Macintosh team here at www.folklore.org.  

It's perfect for a Friday afternoon, we're amusing ourselves by coming up with our suggestions of lookalikes. 

The photos feature the likes of Andy Hertzfeld, Bill Atkinson, Burrell Smith, Steve Jobs, Susan Kare, Jef Raskin and many more of those who worked on the very first Macintosh computer, along with a few babies.

Perhaps the strangest picture is this one where everyone is imitating Steve Jobs' favourite gesture.

Steve Jobs introduced the first Mac on 24 January 1984. It became the first commercially successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface.

The collection includes our own first issue cover of Macworld. 

For the launch of the Mac Apple' aired an epoch-defining 1984 ad for the original Macintosh at the Super Bowl.

"On January 24, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like 1984," the ad declared.

Fancy recreating this picture? It looks like the Macintosh team was a fun place to work.
