Those are computers from 1969 that were damaged via civil unrest against racism at Sir George Williams University:

Arising from a conflict over student charges of racism, there were sit-ins, occupations, negotiations, hearings, culminating on February 11 in a fire that destroyed the Computer Center. There was $2 million damage to the Computer Center; 97 people were arrested (69 were SGW students), and 12 minors were charged in juvenile court.

Is it just me or do they look like fancy record players?
