The Typewriter Database 1936 Corona S Serial # 1S 50906 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dan Johnson: 1936 Corona S Serial # 1S 50906 This is a math typewriter in beautiful and fully operational shape. Math keys include square root, uppercase sigma, delta, pi, and superscript 2. I'm guessing this was specialized for statistical math.

I have always loved typewriters along with other kinds of well-engineered tools and devices such as slide rules, calculators (particular HP), radios, cameras (particularly Nikons), and microscopes. In addition to appreciating their intrinsic beauty and utility, they represent "things that need to be figured out to be understood". That's how I first learned about computers and programming in the 1970s, by figuring things out for myself. It's activity in which I never seem to tire of engaging.

Although communities have arisen around other collection interests, typewriters have the advantage that those who use them also typically enjoy communicating through words, whether those words are about the machines themselves or their lives, hopes, dreams, or expressions of beauty. There's much to be appreciated here.
