A manufacturer I have never seen before, this Admira. Spanish kyeboard layout, and little more can be said about it... I don´t have any clue on the procedence of this typewriter, or whether it´s an original model or a copy of something else. The person I bought it from doesn´t know anything about it. The date is a wild guess, too. Pure mystery.

Nevertheless, it works fine. Not the best typewriter out there, but fairly decent.

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.
