Re: The American Gallery

Great shots of these machines!  Nice just to browse through them now and then.


Sincerely,

Re: The American Gallery

Yes indeed.  Wonderful lighting and composition, like Uwe's earlier pictures in this thread.

Re: The American Gallery

I just rescued this little baby from a local shop - the mid-century Underwoods are so thin on the ground here! Big surprise to find it. & I love it. So cheerful-looking. 1958.

Re: The American Gallery

And while I'm adding things to the American gallery... here is my 1956 Smith-Corona Silent-Super, with the Congressional typeface. I had some teething problems with this (literally, it was the escapement) but it works fine now!

Re: The American Gallery

The 1959 Remington Quiet Riter... the first typewriter I ever bought, I think. But which one...?

The one on the left is the original one. And the one on the right is the one I've just replaced it with, because we've just given the original to my partner's kid, who started writing because of it. Amazingly, one day I went into the only local shop that sells typewriters and saw the identical twin of mine! It's very special to him and to both of us. Thought we'd commemmorate with a photo of both the twins.

Re: The American Gallery

1916 Royal 10. It took me a long time to find an early machine with the elegant, but short-lived, pin striping in this condition. The articulated, mechanical paper guide and the paper table are a nice touch.
