This is the same model that my parents had and kept in their bedroom when I was a child. It's what brought them together. While they were in hgh school, Dad needed to type a paper, and Mom's mom had a typewriter, and the rest is history.
We kids always enjoyed messing around on that typewriter. It brings back indelible, good memories.
I need to get a typeface sample from this one.

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.
