Rare photos of the first days of Apple
We invite you to admire the rare bunch of photos of the first days of Apple's establishment below!
10 years have passed since the first iPhone was released, 40 years since Apple was officially established and 41 years since Steve Jobs founded his own company. And to be as successful today, Apple has gone through a journey of ups and downs and challenges.
Currently, photos of the first days of Apple were relatively rare, but fortunately, two of Apple's first employees, Bob Martinengo and Mark Johnson, recently shared some pictures. Nobody knows.

Apple's dramatic changes when Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak moved the company's headquarters from the Steve Jobs family garage to Apple's first address at 20863 Stevens Creek Blvd., (Building 3, Suite C) in Cupertino, California in 1977.
The two co-founders began creating the first computers, a bare circuit board called the Apple I. This model designed by Steve Wozniak includes only one motherboard with CPU, RAM and basic graphics processing chip. In order to be able to use it, users must purchase the case and keyboard and screen separately.
The first two employees, Bob Martinengo and Mark Johnson, told Business Insider what they had worked with Steve Jobs when no one knew about Apple. They showed people the photos they collected from the beginning of Apple. Besides, combined with some images available in the image gallery of Business Insider page.
Although it is about to move to a new $ 5 billion headquarters, Apple retains its first office as a way to remember the early days of its establishment.
Photos of the first days of Apple were relatively rare. In the 70s of the last century, people did not often use cameras like they do now. So these images are very meaningful, clearly showing what Apple has before it is known to everyone in the world - a company that can change the world. And recently, the first two Apple employees, Bob Martinengo and Mark Johnson, shared some of these rare photos.

" This is obviously something very interesting ," Martinengo said. ( He is currently working at AMAC Accessibility, a company that provides products and services for students with disabilities. )
The only girl to appear in the picture above is Chrisann Brennan ( at that time she was 22 years old ), a girlfriend of high school Steve Jobs ( accustomed to Steve Jobs from Brennan 17 years old ). However, when Brennan became pregnant with his daughter Lisa, Steve Jobs denied the responsibility of being his father. And only admitted Lisa was her child when the girl reached adolescence. However, Steve Jobs used the name Lisa set for the " Apple Lisa " computer in 1978.

According to Mark Johnson, " This image was taken on a Friday, when we were waiting for UPS to pick up the completed 57 Apple IIs. The reason this photo was taken was because it was the first time. We tested, assembled and successfully shipped 57 products within a week, a great achievement the team achieved . "
It is worth noting in this picture, Steve Jobs is arguing with Mike Scott, the first president and CEO of Apple, who has a close connection with Steve Jobs. " This is a very special event , " Johnson said.

If Steve Wozniak is in charge of designing the first Apple products, Steve Jobs is responsible for managing all business issues and finding investors who invest in Apple. The picture below was taken in the event that venture capitalist Mike Markulla invested $ 250,000 in Apple and supported the company during the early days of its establishment. In return, Markkula also held a third of the Apple stock at the time.

The new office is decorated quite simply
This is Stevens Creek's office diagram redrawn by Johnson. Johnson also said that this place is very small and simple layout. Steve Jobs and Wozniak work side by side.
Johnson said: " It is a relatively small workspace. This office consists in a lobby and workspace where there is no partition. On the right is the production area. Surprisingly, Apple occupy the adjacent office space on the right side of the suite C. An office has a small space, where Bill Fernandez designed a circuit board ".
In Stevens Creek office, Steve Jobs and Wozniak work side by side. That won't change when Apple company - growing up to 30 employees, Apple moved to the second headquarters in Bandley Drive, also belonging to Cupertino. Now, Steve Jobs and Wozniak work as far away as possible.

" In a short time working here, I witnessed it from the beginning of my career to a comprehensive production line ," Johnson said. It has gone from a place that has a lot of fun to get more experience than the " working days ", he recalls.
