The Typewriter Database 1955 Rooy portable Serial # 35296 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alfred Kaltenecker: 1955 Rooy portable Serial # 35296 Flattest of the ultaportables (Le Rooy c´est moi!)

French masterpiece, French AZERTY-keyboard.

Very exciting piece of pleasure, 'folding' into its case. Closed only 4,1 centimeters high!

Two interesting details:

- No bell :-(

- The window on the bottom of the real typewriter mechanism opens on pressing the keys. Otherwise there wouldn't be enough space for the key levers.
Clever!

Collector with typewriter virus living in Austria. Fourty years ago typewriters were only standard office equipment for me. I was really glad to get my first but simple word processors in the early Eighties with delete, copy/paste and whatever wonderful functions. This fascination is over. Now I have returned to real mechanics.
