A Vintage Remington Ad

Found this on Youtube. Fascinating video that shows typewriters in the office world and how the transition from manual to electric began. Great depository of period terminology (Although the Remington salesman got the dates wrong for the first typewriter. Shame on you, Jim).

I hopped over to eBay to see if any of these "electi-conomy" models were for sale, just out of curiosity.

I only found one that looked anything like the model featured in the video. It was labeled "refurbished" and the opening bid was over $200! Yikes!
