The Typewriter Database 197X Olivetti Lettera 35 Serial # A268631 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 197X Olivetti Lettera 35 Serial # A268631 A sighting at the shop of my friend, the former chief of assembly line at the Olivetti plant in Barcelona.

This typewriter is waiting to be repaired, but since it was just there I asked if I could take a few photographs of it since (surprisingly) I hadn´t seen a Lettera 35 so far.

Not much to say about it because it´s not operative, but the design is quite nice, and although it looks like a heap of plastic the body is metallic.

The serial number is quite puzzling. It has nothing to do with what appears here at the Database, and I don´t even know if it´s a Spanish unit or a Mexican one due to that weird A-prefix.

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.
