Remington 3 at the Type-In
This lovely two-tone green 1929 Remington #3 showed up at the Type-In almost by accident. Angela Palm came to get some coffee with her two little boys and noticed all of the typewriters. She writes in an office upstairs from Maglianero's and went to get her Remington. Angela had bought it at a local antique shop but it had a twisted ribbon. Sam fixed that right away and she and her boys were happily typing on this fine machine. An especially nice detail on this typewriter is the replacement shift key from the the "American Writing Machine Company." Putting advertisements on a shift key was a common practice for vendors and seems very fitting for this typewriter who is now in the hands of a writer.
