In 1976, Steve Jobs started Apple Company with Steve Wozniak who was 5 years older than him and the first corporate office location was his garage in Palo Alto, California. In January 1977, Apple moved from Steve’s garage to Stevens Creek Boulevard, Cupertino, CA. Apple I came from garage and Apple II came from this new office. In year 1978, Apple moved into new corporate headquarter at 10260 Bandley Drive in Cupertino, CA.

Thanks Chris for sharing the floor plan and details. By the way, there was no “Tennis Court” on that floor at that time. Actually that space was empty and at that time, they were not sure what to do with that. Finally that vacant space became the warehouse of Apple Computers.
