Typewriter Travels and Visits

All in all, it has been a busy typewriter week.  I had the opportunity to travel to Tom Furrier's typewriter shop, Cambridge Typewriter, near Boston to attend his Type-Out yesterday.  It was great to visit his shop and hang out with the typewriter crowd.  I'll let Tom post his pictures and describe the event on his own blog first, but I will tease you with a picture featuring my Singer (Royal Safari) and my Corona Four.  Thanks Tom for hosting such a fun event.  

It's been a busy typewriter week at school too.  A few of my students are continuing to take apart the broken Super Sterling that I had set out for them.  One of my students is becoming a real typewriter collector himself and brought his 1930 Royal P to show me.  That's one proud typewriter collector.  He also brought by his 1970's Olympia SM8 which I grouped with my 1960's SM8 and my SM3 for this nice Olympia x 3 photo.

  1. The Type-Out looks like a lot of fun. I look forward to Tom Furrier's write-up. Your picture of the Young Typewriter Collector warms my heart - though I have probably bid against that kid on eBay :)
