The Typewriter Database 1937 Olympia Progress Serial # 166339 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1937 Olympia Progress Serial # 166339 The Progress was Olympia's middle-of-the-line portable during the '30s and '40s. Wedged between the tabulator equipped Elite and more basic Simplex, the Progress is a sound design with average performance. Still, I really do like the machine, and because it came to me in a non-functioning state that required many hours of my time to repair, I've formed a strong bond with it.
