Celebrity Typewriter Exhibit In Boston

It felt really cool to hold this machine.

I got goosebumps touching this Corona.

For some strange reason the Unibomber's machine fascinated me.

Orson Welles' autograph is on his machine

Sorry, the video won't load, darn my lack of computer skills.

  1. Very nice of Mr. Soboroff to allow folks to touch the machines. I'd have been all over Hemingway's Underwood and Di Maggio's Corona. Thanks for a nice post, Tom!

  2. This looks like a fascinating show and event. Thanks for reporting!

  3. How cool! I've read about the exhibition but no stories from people who actually went. It looks amazing.

  4. What an interesting event, wish I was there.
    The Hemingway story is fascinating, it must have been quite a suspense waiting for what those negatives would yield.
