Welcome to Xerox Nostalgia

Xerox 914

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. With this website we want to preserve the history of Xerox, both the company and the machines that was produced in the early years of Xerox. We hope you enjoy this showcase, and history of the old Xerox copiers and duplicators, as well as the story of Xerox and Xerography.

Many thanks to Xerox Archivist Ray Brewer, for providing most of the images that is seen on this website.

Xerox 50 series

In 1988 Xerox launched their 50 series, to celebrate Fifty years after Chester Carlson produced the first xerographic image in his Astoria, Queens, New York lab.  Xerox called the new copiers, grouped under the 50 series label, its most important new products since 1982, when it announced the first of its 10 series of copiers.

The new models had more features and cost more than models in the 10 series, which helped Xerox win back much of the market it had lost to Japanese rivals. The first models in the 50 series was 5018502850465052 and 5090.

We are very interested in brochures and pictures of old Xerox copiers/duplicators. If you have pictures or brochures, please contact us on this email address: xeroxnostalgia@outlook.com.
