Typewriter Pin-Ups...

From a childhood in the 1950's and 1960's...pin-up calendars hung in most of our Dad's garages, over their work benches.

Found some neat typewriter pin-ups images on-line.  Think they are mild enough to post up and are not of the "smutty" variety.

My goal is to capture enough images to make myself a Calendar with the date/day portion changeable each year.

And then there's the more recent weirdness like Tina Fey with an Olivetti. I don't know what the background of this photo is, but I'm sure there's some sort of explanation for it. If any of our female members (or anyone else for that matter) finds this stuff offensive, please let me know.

Re: Typewriter Pin-Ups...

I wonder how many of us here are sad enough to first try to identify the typewriter ...


I wish I was a head light on a north-bound train

We humans go through many computers in our lives, but in their lives, typewriters go through many of us.
In that way, they’re like violins, like ancestral swords. So I use mine with honor and treat them with respect.
I try to leave them in better condition than I met them. I am not their first user, nor will I be their last.

I was already laughing at Ian's comment, but Sky's reply knocked me right out of my chair - in part because I have no idea if he was being literal or demonstrative. Meanwhile... I think my first thought upon unearthing the photo was "that's no way to treat a typewriter!"
