March 2012- March 2014… the typewriter that started my collection. The 1961 Olympia Portable SM7.
Went outside to look for signs of spring… flowers… bugs… BBQ… its here. YEAH!
I wanted to be in a mellow mood and the Smith Premier 30 did the trick for me. Smooth and nice… just right!
What can I say… I’ve read nice things about the Adler Gabriele but the one I use to own did not cut it. So when this one came my way I took her home.
This 1954 Studio 44 just improves with use. Now that its starting to loosen up… it becomes hard to move on to another. At first it did not strike me as that good of a typewriter but with each use my view shifts and now it is one of the special ones.
On TV they showed the 1961 movie Pocketful of Miracles. At the Library they had “Lady for the a Day” both directed by Frank Capra. I enjoyed the old one best of all.
It was jeep’s blues… the duke… Johnny Hodges… American Hustle… who would have thought it. It was “Live from Newport” (1956) for a movie set in 1978. I did get a little picky when they set the needle down on the record and Jeep’s Blues was the third song down on side B and not the first… but so what. It was the Duke…
By 1972 the Sperry Rand Remington 24 had a all plastic body… and to my amazement types great.
The page is full. The type was good. And all is well.
