The Typewriter Database 1985 Brother Charger 11 Serial # F53381567 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1985 Brother Charger 11 Serial # F53381567 Oh Brother. I see more Brothers than pretty much any other machine in the Toronto area. This is a nice little machine that came with the original receipt and a list of Brother retailers, which I've captured in the other photos. This machine is worth, in these parts, about a quarter of what it originally sold for in 1985.

Oh Brother. I see more Brothers than pretty much any other machine in the Toronto area. This is a nice little machine that came with the original receipt and a list of Brother retailers, which I've captured in the other photos. This machine is worth, in these parts, about a quarter of what it originally sold for in 1985.

The equivalent of CAN$108.99 in 2018 dollars is $231.07, so still pretty cheap.

These kinds of documents must be printed in English and French in Canada. This typewriter was sold by Consumers Distributing, a now defunct catalogue store, in Mississauga, a suburb (or city, depending on how you look at it) just outside the Toronto city limits, where very few people speak French. Far more people speak Punjabi, Urdu, Farsi, Mandarin and other languages, but for some reason the retailer filled out the French side of the warranty.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
