1924 Simplex E Serial # 1521408 1924 Simplex E typewriter, Serial # 1521408 Joshua Chalifour's 1924 Simplex E typewriter. 2018-06-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Joshua Chalifour: 1924 Simplex E Serial # 1521408 The story is, this got used by my wife's grandfather during the second world war--trying to get some more details about that. I can imagine though, that it's portability (not much bigger than my hand) and lack of many moving parts probably was beneficial.

I'm an academic librarian and a writer. I confess to typewriter ogling, a symptom of being a mécascriptophile.
