1961 Olympia SG1

Serial #7-647957 frame & carriage; 8-668530 carriage

What a neat treat--and there's one on the front and one on the back.

Got this from a mother who kept it around to amuse the kids and when they grew out of it she sold it to me; what does that say about me? Had to re-anchor several transverse bars inside; repair vibrator, carriage motion, Shift Lock key, some linkages at the back. Still have to fix the sporadic paper injector (bet the kids had fun with that!) and find a paper support.

Yes, that's a Tytell service sticker.

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.
