1937 Remington Model 5 Streamline Serial # V908027 1937 Remington Model 5 Streamline typewriter, Serial # V908027 LaDonna Qualtieri's 1937 Remington Model 5 Streamline typewriter. 2024-01-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of LaDonna Qualtieri: 1937 Remington Model 5 Streamline Serial # V908027 Restored and painted by Iron Rox Typewriters in New Jersey, USA. It is the oldest machine in my collection and typing on it feels so very different than any of my other typewriters. The round keys take a little extra effort for me to strike fluidly, but that’s ok! It smells good, like my grandmother’s old sewing machine, and is beautiful enough to be left out under a vinyl cover. Over time it has become apparent that round keys are too hard on my fingertips, pulling the skin from the nail bed, like “turf toe” that footballers get, but on fingers. Is there a word for it? Shall we make we one up? Or just toughen up Buttercup?

I have many pen pals and correspond via handwritten and typed letters. I have a (painful) sitting disability and type while standing- UPDATE! I can also type on an ultraportable I set up on my bed. Typing and collecting machines with different typefaces keeps me busy and happily distracted from the difficulties in life-fountain pens, too, and I can write legibly, in cursive, while laying down. Join me on Type Pals and register for the monthly postcard exchanges. The “Cat Mews” is a quarterly publication of the philatelic topical group Cats On Stamps Study Unit (COSSU), for which I am a column contributor. My cats are Wiffle Wizard and Urushi (Rushi) Blizzard, aka the Blizzard Sisters.
