Firing Room 1, Post-Launch

This photo was taken about 15 minutes after the Apollo 11 launch on July 16, 1969 (see clock on wall), while launch room personnel listened to VIP remarks.  At this point, a number of people are out of their launch-time positions.  For instance, no. 2 was a Boeing Tie contractor not normally located at or near that console.
