The Typewriter Database 1915 Underwood 5 Serial # 792931 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1915 Underwood 5 Serial # 792931 Got this by asking at a yard sale where they had no typewriters on display. The nickel plating looks pretty good but the works are gummed up in many ways. It doesn't type well enough for a sample.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
