The Typewriter Database 1957 Groma Modell T Serial # 350358 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1957 Groma Modell T Serial # 350358 I´ve always found this typewriter beautiful and so far I´m delighted with Gromas, so this great looking portable is more than welcome even if what I´m really looking for is a Groma N.


This one has arrived after a month of excuses by the seller, but at least it´s undamaged. For sure it needs a bit of dedication after long years of neglecting (like most typewriters do), but I´m confident this typewriter will be ready to roll sooner than later. Apart from the flowing shape of the return lever, this typewriter has the most epic paper arm on a portable. Some of them are telescopic, but not this one. This looks like one of the two which are pressent in the gargantuan Groma S.

As a bonus, this lady has brought a set of brushes with her. Nice!

I´ve tried it a bit with its mummified ribbon, and there´s some groaning under the carriage. I think the carriage release needs a visit to the doctor.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
