1953 Brosette Portable Serial # 12359 1953 Brosette Portable typewriter, Serial # 12359 Paul Baars's 1953 Brosette Portable typewriter. 2015-03-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Baars: 1953 Brosette Portable Serial # 12359 Today I was delighted to be able to pick up this beauty. Only slightly used, not really dirty, just some dust. Is typing a bit slow due to sitting in its case for too long. But the action is very direct and once it is clean it should be okay.

1960. Forestry engineer and watchmaker by education. Working as IT guy (database and web) in the national office of an international NGO in Amsterdam.
Have always liked machines, mechanics and apparatus. Always fixing things.
And bird watcher. The tufted duck is one of my favorites.

Got infected with the typewriter virus about a year ago (end 2012) and discovered there is a lot on offer here in the Netherlands for reasonable prices. Storage space is becoming an issue :-)
