If anyone wants to see black-and-white adverts from the same period, let me know and I will post of those as well.

Thanks for all the wonderful ads. I have a few of the machines mentioned in my collection and a desire for many more, especially the color ones, on my wish list. I also wish for enough money to buy them.

B & W ads would be nice too.

That's a great collection of beautiful images you have collected.

Lots of beautiful ads here. The very first speaks of "no publicity for private matters" -- which is more important than ever as a selling point for typewriters today. (Ask the Kremlin.)

"Cleaning up the fag end of the day"? :D

Wow, people really did talk different back then!

Great ads! I'll print some of them to go with the corresponding machines in my collection. Will make a very nice wall display!

You are killing me. These are G R E A T! My favourites are Natalie Wood and the stone age one.
