Remington Typewriter

Labeled "Remmington Rand - Model Seventeen" A bygone and forgotten era. The typewriter was as revolutionary as the personal computer in its time, allowing anyone, no matter how unreadable their handwriting, to put words on paper with lightining speed. 60 words per minute was not uncommon. I found this gem in in old country store basement in Southern Indiana

    I have a 1941 Model 17. It is a beautiful machine. I love how they have a download carriage return handle. Most typewriters point upward. People stop by my cubical at work all the time just to check it out. I tell them that it has a built in keyboard and printer but no memory...
