A Few Typewriter Pics

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

I mentioned the "other project" last night. Part of the holiday was spent working on an old Remington typewriter. I think it's a Model 17 ca. 1939-43. Yep, they made those babies during the war years. I'm sure the government needed plenty of them.

This particular typewriter was rescued from a trash pile years ago. I just never got around to fooling much with it until lately. Paul got the guts working again, and I cleaned it, touched up the bare spots, and found a ribbon.

Of course, I took pictures! These are from my Flickr stream, so you can resize if you wish.

All Work and No Play

I still need to figure out what's going on with the "s" key.
