Never Seen Photos of Steve Jobs Returning at Apple appears on Flickr (1996)

Just found this and thought it was worth sharing:

On December 20, 1996, Mac OS employee Tim Holmes was working late at Apple’s headquarters, when suddenly, his manager came rushing by. He told Holmes to head to the “Town Hall,” Apple’s big conference room.

Steve Jobs was back at Apple. He was returning from his long exile and he wanted to meet with employees. Holmes went and took a bunch of photos.

You’ll notice that their quality is bad. That’s because Holmes used an Apple QuickTake camera, which, Holmes points out, Jobs killed within the year.

“The colors are way off due to the poor quality of digital cameras in 1996, Steve’s jacket was black in real life.”

Still they’re worth seeing. Lucky us, Holmes, now just posted all of them to Flickr.
