maya! This is so cool! It's electric, right? You should have seen the typewriter I learned to type on. It was not electric! It was in middle school and I guess they just kept their old typewriters from way back. I sure wish I had one now. I love your photos!

@gayle - this one is not electric! it's manual! when i took typing class, half the class had manual and half had electric and then we would switch every so often. it was torture going from electric to manual!

I learned on a manual. NOT. FUN. Kids these days do not realize how lucky they are. Awesome images, as usual!

Very cool shots! I wonder what the Magic Column Set button does.


I learned on a manual too, but in France, where the letters are in different places, instead of qwerty it is azerty! I'd love to have an old fashion type writer now ;)


oh how wonderful!
i have a very severe crush on old typewriters- i inherited one from an old family friend and it is seriously one of my most prized possessions. the sad thing is i can't find tape ribbon to fit it and thus can't use it.
i totally agree with you about the shift key. typing on manual typewriters gives you such a sense of accomplishment, don't you think?
i took typing in sixth grade. my typing teacher seriously had four inch long hot pink nails and gave me the only C of my life. i was devastated-- but it also prompted me to show her and learn to type like a pro.


That is very cool. I especially love the avocado & golden rod color combo!


Did I ever tell you that my grandmother could have broken a record with her typing skills? She could type 180 words a minute on a MANUAL typewriter! Without a mistake!!
