A History Class With A Lot Of History In It.



Each row of desks are a different style






Zoom in and try to identify as many objects as you can.






This Monarch No.3 works great again.





This is one cool setup. A typewriter with it's own stand.



These 3-bank machines are neat little compact machines.




I love the thumb wear mark on the space bar.


This folding Corona is off to Pittsburgh.

Does anybody know what application this keyboard is for?



When you buy a lot of machines, sometimes they come with stuff.











THE END

  1. That would be a fun place to go to school!
    I love the people who don't know the folding stand is in the bottom of some of those Underwood cases...sometimes that is the only way to get one cheaply. I love mine and use t fairly often; one of the laundromats I use has chairs but no tables and it is very helpful there.

    1. Sophia- Thanks for your generous comments. The pictures of the classroom don't do it justice. It's way cooler in person.

  5. I just discovered your blog and I love it! I just recently acquired a Smith Corona SL575 electric typewriter. My husband found it in a thrift shop for $5. It has renewed my love of typewriters. If I may ask, I noticed that your blog posts are typewritten. How do you do that? Do you type it then scan it, save as a picture and then post it?

    1. Hi Sharon, Glad you found my blog. I write it on different typewriters and scan the pages into the computer and save them into my photos file. All the pictures I take on my phone and save them to the same photos file. Glad your are enjoying typing again. It's very addictive. Wait till you try typing on a older manual machine. Thanks!
