The Typewriter Database 197x Remington Streamliner Serial # not found From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 197x Remington Streamliner Serial # not found If you were expecting _the_ Streamliner, you’ll be disappointed; Remington kept using and re-using this name and this is the end of the line, I hope. It’s really cheap. The case bottom is integral and the clip-on top was included.

This points up a practice in almost every field---a manufacturer will build up a good reputation for a model and then keep coasting on that model name while cheapening everything about it and even going through major radical redesigns. (The Toyota Celica comes to mind, where they went from rear-wheel drive to front-wheel drive and didn’t change the name. Surprise!) Be specific, people.

Because the platen cannot rotate, I’m not going to have a typeface sample, but am including a photo of the slugs in its place. I think this one will be parted out.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
