This is one of the three typewriters sighted at a solicitor´s office in Peñafiel, a beautiful village with one of the most spectacular castles of Castille: it´s like a battleship atop the mount!

But back to the typewriter. This wedge is still active, although I haven´t tried it. The most funny thing is mannual typewriters are always preferred to these ones. Many of them were bought to replace old ones, but nowadays when a typewriter is needed you´ll go for the oldies.

Nevertheless, this thing (which looks like a close relative of some hospital equipment) has a lot of functions which could come in handy. According to the label, it can print 14 characters per second, has automatic paper feed, one line correction memory, tabulators, different alineations, bold typing, underlining, sub and super index...

And I bet 90% of them have never been used.

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.
