The typing contest is always a highlight of the day.

The QWERTY cupcakes were a hit.

Carbon paper from Russia.

The prizes.

The winner.

Awesome Torpedo in a color we don't what to call.

Giant Typewriter To Debut At Burning Man


I never get tired of these old Coronas.

The Olympia Robust was made for the German military.

Even the carrying case is heavy duty.

The previous owner typed this as a young boy maybe fifty years ago.

Typewriter Roadshow goes To Portland

Just getting warmed up with the class.

I'm more comfortable with a hands on approach.

A Hammond I recently refurbished and a American Scientific 
Class was held in the Portland Room which is the rare books room.

I'm showing someone how to fix their Lettera 35.

Showing how to adjust the escapement trip point.

This is supposed to be the first letter written by Samuel Clemens on his new Sholes and Glidden.

Calligraphy class by Abraham, standing room only.
