We've Got Ourselves a Type-In!

As Crocodile Dundee might say: "Type-in? Call that a type-in? This is a type-in!"
Some 1300 typists take civil service examinations in an indoor stadium of the McKinley High School in Washington DC on July 9, 1936. 
"With the resumption of examinations for stenographers and typists by the United States Civil Service Commission, such enormous numbers of applications have been received that the examiners have been forced to hold the tests in the huge indoor stadium of the McKinley High School," the caption read.
ABOVE AND BELOW:In December 1917, London & North West Railway staff  take a typewriting class.

The SOUND in that huge room, crammed so full of typewriters, must have been incredible.
