190x Underwood 4 Serial # ??70?7 190x Underwood 4 typewriter, Serial # ??70?7 Michael Hoehne's 190x Underwood 4 typewriter. 2018-10-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 190x Underwood 4 Serial # ??70?7 At first I wasn't going to list this one here, until I realized that if I didn't, that would definitely ruin our chances of cataloging all four million of these that were made. So here it is. Totally rusted, though.

Note the decal at the spacebar:â€Shipman Ward Mfg. Co. Chicagoâ€, a rebuilder, probably. Hmmm, maybe I could fix it and add my own name...

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.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood 4 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood 4 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
