1913 Underwood 5

Serial #614289

This machine is one of three old standards that have come out of hiding after many years, having been donated to me by friends who didn't know what else to do with them. I'm posting these as before shots--the three will be my first major cleaning and oiling solo project. I hope to have updated pics soon.

I started collecting typewriters in 1996 when my employer at an old newsstand in Kalamazoo, MI gave me her mother's Underwood Elliot Fisher Noiseless; I love these machines and learning how to repair and maintain them. The Noiseless was the medium for a zine I wrote through the nineties and into the oughts, and my nine-year-old daughter now types regularly.
