Synthesizers. com’s Roger Arrick has shared an excellent collection of photos of the Moog synthesizer factory in 1977, taken by William Beith .
Beith stopped at the Moog factory at its Cheektowaga, NY location as part of his work with Gibson Guitars.
The particular photos are very evocative, because of the both content and the age of the movie. And the pictures capture the manufacturing plant when some of Moog’s most well-known instruments were in production.
Beith notes, “There were no restrictions placed on the ability to photograph, which resulted in pictures that include the R& D procedure. The Polymoog was in production. R& D efforts were underway pertaining to what would eventually become the Memorymoog. ”
