On This Day in Typewriter History (XXXIV)

Typewriter Day
Today's THE Day!
Every picture is worth a thousand words; every typewritten word worth a thousand pictures (or at least these 60 ...)
Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Man
It was on this day in 1868 that Christopher Latham Sholes, Carlos Glidden and Samuel Willard Soule were issued with their first patent for the Sholes and Glidden typewriter.
Lillian Sholes, then Mrs Charles Fortier, aged 82, reenacts her first typing performance in 1939 (as an actress had done in 1933)
Thank you, Mr Sholes ...
