My first post was on a Olympia SM7 from 1961. I had heard an Olympia portable was used by Stan Laurel, which was all the recommendation I needed. Checking my typed pages I learned that it was not until September 2012 that I confirmed this information. Back then I did not even number my posts (only after I passed 250 and felt it would be helpful to keep track).
Along the way I discovered a website called Letters from Stan where they collected letters that Stan Laurel typed… in 2012 the number of letters was 1,184 today it is 1,620. Mr. Laurel died Feb 23, 1965 and the last letter they show is from Feb 20, 1965. Laurel & Hardy always brought a smile to my face.
