I find the ones with ivory keys stunning. (Did they slaughter elephants as well as harvesting the mahogany??)

Holy cow... What a gorgeous collection of machines.

I think that Rheinmetall typewriters are rather overlooked.

Hi Robert. Loving the blog! I have an Underwood 310 that's now in really good nick, thanks to my local typewriter (and everything else) repairer. The case is in excellent condition and came with the unpacking instructions and user guide.

No, I'm not trying to sell it! I was wondering if any of your readers would be interested in a scanned copy of the documents.

Regards, Pamela.
