The Typewriter Database 1950s Hermes Baby Serial # unknown From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1950s Hermes Baby Serial # unknown Lightweight and quite portable, the Hermes Baby should be a decent laptop typewriter if it were in better condition than the one I had. Still a memorable machine for me because it was my first foray into repairing a typewriter... and it was a success story (see my blog post). I said goodbye to the Baby soon after, I gave it to a friend.
