I think the word I'm searching for is "gobsmacked."
All of the hundreds of more reasons I would love to visit there.
I never heard of a typewriter ribbon tester. How does it work?
Thanks for all the fine photos.
What an amazing collection. A really, really amazing collection.
I consider myself to be pretty well-versed in my typewriter models, yet I've never seen at least 7 of these until now! Thanks for showing all of these photos. :D
Great photographs. I'm astonished at the variety of design and the number of manufacturers. It makes me realize that typewriters were a very big deal in the early 1900's, drawing many into the business. Even by the 1950's, a portable for home use was a major acquisition, costing as much as a decent used car. My mother bought me a 1957 Olympia SM3 when I was a high school junior. It cost $125, the same as the decent 1952 Plymouth Cranbrook sedan that my dad found for me.
Depths of my ignorance just sounded a new low. Thanks for the great photos!
Simply amazing. I like the way the paper tables on the Remington Model 7s is tilted back for viewing. Good idea.
The green Sun and the white Molle impressed me most. What a wonderful slice of heaven.
Fantastic collection there at Chestnut Ridge. I've only seen most of these in photos (and now I've seen them in photos again!) (:
Wowsers! I'm amazed speechless. What a fantastic collection!
If only each could tell its story.
I think I like the Betz Visible the best, but that's because it's mine! (Well, mine and my brother Dave's, that is.)
GREAT photos you've posted here. Surely everyone should get to see something like this at least once, and with your photos everyone who wasn't there can at least get a hint of what seeing these many varied machines brought from around the globe is like.
So many machines! You must feel like a kid in a candystore. Great!!
