The IBM 1050 Data Communications System was introduced on March 12th 1963.[1]

A typical 1050 system consisted of a 1051 control unit (big black box underneath the desk in the picture), and a 1052 keyboard/printer. This could be expanded with paper tape reader(1054) and punch(1055) or a card reader/punch(1442).

On many IBM System 360 mainframes, a bare 1052 keyboard/printer was hard-wired into the system for use as the console terminal.
