1956 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # EQR276444 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter, Serial # EQR276444 Julian Zadorozny's 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter. 2023-05-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Julian Zadorozny: 1956 Remington Quiet-Riter Serial # EQR276444 This Remington has survived sixty-seven years in the woods. This Quiet-Riter was part of a two typewriter giveaway an hour north of Toronto. My sister in laws husband, with love and understanding, finished his shift at the post office and drove into the country. A woman handed him two typewriters for free. He drove there because I asked him too. I am forever grateful.

A Facebook Marketplace freebie scrolled into my sight and I spotted a dark green Smith Corona Skyriter and wanted it more than the Remington. This typewriter is never going to be typed on by me. I've donated the Remington to Dominion Business Machines. With the Smith Corona Sterling in my collection, already a swift and reliable machine, this Remington doesn't make sense to invest in mending.

I hope that someone up in the cooler temps of New Tecumseth worked hours on this machine. Maybe it was a gift, or a machine used for homework. Either way this Remington is rusted and neglected. Maybe it'll be cleaned and oiled and sold to someone who wants to type on those keys for long hours.

I purchased my first typewriter in 2000: Brother Pro-Line 707 built in 1969.
I wrote eight hours a day, seven days a week on that tiny machine. I wrote my first unpublished novel and hundreds of short stories on the Brother.
In 2020 I decided to purchase my second typewriter. At ten and counting, I still use and collect these amazing tools for writing.
