Xerox is the company that brought the first plain paper copier to the world. The process for making copies on plain paper, was first called Electro-photography, but was later changed to Xerography.
The purpose of this website, is to preserve the history of Xerox, both the company and the machines that was produced in the early years of Xerox. I hope you enjoy this showcase, and history of the old Xerox copiers and duplicators, as well as the story of Xerox and Xerography.
