Is It Art Or Just A Typewriter On The Wall


Here's something you don't see in every house.




This Lettera 22 has been sitting unused in this box for 60 years.


You can see the ship to address in this shot.

You can tell this machine was never used before.




This Torpedo is very stylish with a 60's vibe and cursive type.

More Beautiful Repairs Coming In.

1927 Royal "P" Model.


These machines are so much fun to type on.

1929 Royal "P" Model. Love this color of blue.


The colors from these 1929 models just glow!


These linespace counters probably charged customers by the line.

1940 burgundy Royal Quiet de Luxe.

I just don't see many of these other than black.



Late 30's Corona Junior Model S looks spectacular.

The Model S denotes that it has a backspace key.

Another Good Trade


I traded this late 60's IBM Selectric I.

And I got this 1923 Underwood 3-Bank Portable.

I need to give it the once over but it will be great.


This 1940 folding Corona is in fabulous condition.

It has a Danish keyboard.

This Corona Sterling is one of my top three favorite machines.

I get a lot of pink machines in for repairs these days.









A little early morning blogging this morning.
