1949 Hermes Baby Serial # 5112508 1949 Hermes Baby typewriter, Serial # 5112508 Sue MacDonald's 1949 Hermes Baby typewriter. 2020-05-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sue MacDonald: 1949 Hermes Baby Serial # 5112508 Oh boy this Baby is sweet. I expected it to feel a little gritty, because the tiny metal typewriter makes me think of an old Army jeep, but I could type on it all day. The keys feel great to my fingers/hand-span. This is another of my favorites. Purchased from Dax collection in 2019.

Typewriter user since childhood--"Endofthehall Press" (produced a magazine for my big sister, I did) and avid hunter for many years. Partial to portables/ultraportables, but do love my standard models too. I use my typewriters for letters, recipes, lists, stories, pondering, and in art/fabric creations.
