1973 Olivetti Studio 45 Serial # 2008846 1973 Olivetti Studio 45 typewriter, Serial # 2008846 Currie Russell's 1973 Olivetti Studio 45 typewriter. 2021-01-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Currie Russell: 1973 Olivetti Studio 45 Serial # 2008846 From Kijiji seller in Waterloo, ON. Belonged to seller's aunt who was a secretary. So grubby and full of crud - had to take it all apart and remove what was left of the noise attenuating foam. Did not replace the foam as it didn't make that much difference. Re-adhered the front emblem. Now a fine machine!

My father brought with him a Hermes Rocket when he emigrated from the UK to Canada in 1967 and I remember playing with it as a kid. This memory was reignited while I was in Montreal for work this past February and came across a stationery shop that had five typewriters in the window. When I got home, I went on the hunt for my first typewriter - caught the bug and haven't stopped!
