I have been to Salem, Mass. and I really enjoyed the town and its historical environs. I never realized that the Hall was from Salem. It is, no doubt, one of the more eccentric designs for a typewriter.

Yes Scott, I know exactly how you feel. ScienceWorks sent me on my way on Friday with the Hall all nicely packaged up. I "dumped" the other three typewriters in the boot and sat with this on my lap, carefully unwrapping it. To my great disappointment, the case was locked and they'd given me no key. Eventually I used the old credit card trick. The case lid popped up - and, yes, my breath was absolutely taken away. It took me forever to get it back ...

That is a really beautiful unique typewriter. The first one like that I have ever seen.
