The Typewriter Database 1950 Remington All-New Serial # A2097834 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1950 Remington All-New Serial # A2097834 "Dragonfly"

This fine workhorse was hand-carried across the Pacific by Fred Durbin. Although missing a paper table (ripped off by a trophy hunter?), it types like a dream. Pica type face, bears the scars of battle (chiefly some flaking paint along the lower rear left side) but is a sweet addition to this man's typer fleet. Thank you Fred!! It will always remind me of our first meeting.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
