Great views. I wish I could read "The Heart of the Portable."

The earliest known Noiseless Portable, #92, has now joined the Chestnut Ridge Typewriter Museum.

Fascinating and ingenious mechanism in these (although, that could be said for all typewriters!). But i always need to put myself in an accommodating mindset when i fire up one of my Remingtons.
