50's styling, Lots of chrome.

Stunning to type on with its spring loaded keys.

Very over-engineered German quality.

Originally from the Garden of England, Kent. I have lived in Sheffield for over fifteen years.

As a young child, I always enjoyed taking things apart and seeing how they functioned.

I have been collecting a range of vintage typewriters for over two years.

Previously, I was interested in restoring sewing machines, then I acquired my mothers Olivetti Dora and looked under the hood and typed, I was hooked on typewriters and how they worked.

I learn something every day from passionate bloggers and typewriter enthusiasts.

Mr. Joe Van Cleave is someone who's videos inspire me and his passion for the subject encouraged me to upload images of my machines to this wonderful resource.
