A Royal Mildew 800 ?

This Royal Futura 800 gets a second life.

This machine not only looks great, but smells great too.

I can't believe this machine was serviced so much in ten years.

This Olympia SM-5 is perfect.

Notice how the corners of the machine are starting to turn caramel.

The Jayvee sold only at J.C. Penney

1960 Olympia Splendid goes to a young writer.

The infamous pointing finger key from a Underwood No. 4.

I found this in a case with a SCM Electra 220.

Ever wonder what's on the back of these ads - more ads!

The Nations School - August 1959

This 1948 Underwood Electric looks more like a teletype machine.
