|I can't decide if it's battleship grey or faded blue.|
|I love these dealership plaques.|
A BIG thanks to Richard Polt for helping me get my scans to work properly. Here are some other machines I saw. If you're near St. Mary, Missouri and need a typer, head to the Antique Mall! Remember, I only saw half of the store.
|Quiet-Riter, space bar does not advance carriage.|
|Underwood No 5, broken drawstring–$84|
|Sears Electric II|
|This little Royalite was hiding! Proof that you've got to look in ever nook and cranny. |
I showed a friend how to check for problems, and this portable seemed to be in excellent working condition.
Not even sticky keys!
|Smith Corona Clipper, very similar to my Sears Tower (but mine has a 1 key and different tab set controls).|
|Holy cow, it's King Kong! |
Royal KHM with 20" carriage. $150
That's one shelf holding up six typewriters!
I mentioned my summer class earlier. I spent a lot of time in neighboring Ste. Genevieve, and was allowed to tour some of the old French houses. Managed to get two more sightings while up in the attics.
|Post-war Remington, most likely a Super Riter. Broken carriage return lever.|
Surrounded by fleece and in a very hot room.
|Royal 440, also in a very hot room.|
|Found this at Hobby Lobby. When I get my own house, I'll put it above my desk!|
Power to the pen!
