Re: New contest: identify Langston Hughes' typewriter

Given his age in the photo, I'd guess it's a Remington Portable #2. Of course it could also be a Scout or a Monarch, or any number of other Remington portables, but the necessary detail to determine which model it exactly is just isn't available in that photo.


Stay Safe!

It's a Remington Portable of some variation. That's about all you can say.
