Anyway I did a quick search of Ferranti Dundee and this very niche advert came up which made me smile - Dundee sits on a river with two bridges going across it, recreated here with sockets :-)

Howdy Neighbour!

Ferranti had a big factory not so terribly far from Timex, where they made the ZX81 and ZX Spectrum - which used Ferranti ULAs! I wonder if that was a contributing factor in the decision to use them.

I'm guessing you're in roughly the same age demographic as me, and grew up with a ZX Spectrum along with everyone else at school ;-)
