The Typewriter Database 192X Barr Typewriter Serial # 2742 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Rosenzweig: 192X Barr Typewriter Serial # 2742 This early Barr doesn't include a model name. It was made by Barr-Morse in Ithaca, NY, before production was moved to Weedsport, NY. The carriage is locked in place by centering it and pushing down the carriage return lever, the bottom of which then engages in a hole. Another unusual feature is an eraser holder on the right side of the casing.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
