1941 Remington Streamliner Serial # B102269 1941 Remington Streamliner typewriter, Serial # B102269 Stephen Clancy's 1941 Remington Streamliner typewriter. 2021-08-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Stephen Clancy: 1941 Remington Streamliner Serial # B102269 This little nugget was found in Norwood, NC and came from the estate of Mr. Robert Page Priko who, after a dancing career on Broadway, became the visual merchandiser for Macy's. His daughter Louise Priko McCall states she believes he used this typewriter in some of the Macy's advertisements. This "Streamliner" was manufactured in March of 1941 (the second month of production for this model) and bears the early windstream paper support decal before it's modification in the summer of 1941. Due WWII, this model was only produced until April 1, 1942 when the WPB (War Production Board) mandated no more portable machines were to be produced for the general public, and that any other portables manufactured, were to be for use by the Army and Navy only. This Streamliner cleaned up very nicely and I only need to wind some new ribbon onto the spools to make it perfect.

Retired in June of 2015 and relocated from IL to NC (no more snow and cold but unfortunately, no more Portillo's Chicago dogs either). Missed my old manual typewriter and went on the hunt for a replacement. My first find was a 1920 Royal Model 10 (second design with the dual side glass) . Have always been very fond of typewriters, from the old portable that my mother used, to my first typing class in 1967, then on into the Navy where, as a Communications Yeoman, I worked on the AN/UGC-6 with the 28 ASR (automatic send receive) teletype machine as well as the IBM card punch machines in use at the time. I guess you can say that from 1967 onward, I have been typing on one machine or another, and now have started collecting as my little part in the preservation of the great machines of he past.
