Vintage Portable Typewriter, Underwood Elliott Fisher Limited Toronto Canada

Vintage portable typewriter, Underwood Elliott Fisher Limited Toronto Canada, in case. Totally charming. Charming when set beside my laptop, two machines used for typing. I typed 6 years of essays times two people on an old, very heavy and bulky high school, no letters on the keys, Royal Typewriter. This was a very labor intensive and not very pleasant way to produce papers, but it honed a skill that has been used most days of my life; keyboarding. I did it, taught it, used it in the home, work, small business and, when the first Apple computers arrived at work, in took to the new technology with a vengeance and never looked back. 

 


Wikipedia has a broad overview on typewriters.
