Subject: RE: BS: Elderly electrical appliances
I bought a 1970's portable typewriter at an estate sale, because my children destroyed my old portable typewriter in their playful childhood. I think this is manual, but for many years I had a huge Cadillac of typewriters, a daisy-wheel Silver-Reed electric that changed fonts easily. It was the printer (letter quality in the days of dot matrix) that was used with my 1980s computers. I finally donated it somewhere, it didn't work and no one was maintaining them. Now typewriters are all the rage again, though mostly the manual varieties.
Tom Hanks collects typewriters. He wrote a book about them.
