I collected some images of typewriters as a self-portrait.
I signed my Hermes 8 typewriter. Took its picture… then decided it had more value without the signature. So I removed it….
Was watching a 52 year old tv show while typing on a 98 year old typewriter… and thinking about how old I was when the cars on the street I lived on all looked liked the ones in that show.
Who we are when no one watches… or when the rubber meets the road defines character.
The Smith Premier 10 is fun… you just type the size that matches the top of the key. No shifting needed.
I raised the height on the Demountable 1/2 inch (by adjusting the feet) and for the 1st time I used the spacebar on a entire page without issue.
I typed a line… then three days later I finished. The 106 year old LC Smith waited… without complaint. A computer would have been asking to update something after 3 days…
Patience is a trait… that some people have. As a child I did not know what it was (I had none) as an adult I treasure those with it… like some treasure gold.
Dorothy R. commented on my yellow Corona 3 and asked for images of its interior. She has a broken drawstring on her machine. Any one with experience with the Corona 3 drawstring repair please comment and provide info or links. Thank you all!
As I type on this 1927 Smith Premier 30 the world seems nicer and my mood improves. Even as it stalls and stops… I relax and smile. I’ve got my typewriter fix and I feel good.
