1936 Remington Portable 5 Serial # V728598 1936 Remington Portable 5 typewriter, Serial # V728598 Marlize L's 1936 Remington Portable 5 typewriter. 2021-05-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Marlize L: 1936 Remington Portable 5 Serial # V728598 A friend came by and saw our typewriters. Then he remembered that there must be, somewhere in a shed, that old typewriter that he used to type on when he was a child.
The machine was moldy, the drawband was broken, also the ribbon did not advance. He repaired it all in one evening, he's a very handy guy.
I had ample time to take pictures, the light was awful. But it is nice to tell this story of a rescued typewriter. The friend uses it now: he types, photographs and apps the photo.
Dutch keyboard ('IJ' instead of 'Y').
