This Remington Portable No 3 duotone orchid-coloured typewriter, serial number V134385, was owned by Janet McArthur of 1118 Garden Street, Bellingham, Washington State. It was a Christmas gift to the then 18-year-old schoolgirl and cost $60. Remington introduced a dazzling array of eight colour combinations for the No 3 for the Christmas market of 1928.
This is the typewriter I took with me as my travelling machine to Noumea a few years ago. It not only performed consistently well, but it opened quite a few admiring eyes as well!
