I used typewriters for many years. This one looks charming but primitive

That brings back memories!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They're beautiful machines!
A far cry from what we use now.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They couldn't have imagined!

Rhythm was so important. When two fingers followed too fast, the letter hammers got stuck and you had to untangle them. C and L seems to be stuck here.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I remember that frustration!
I remember those old things. The lever to send the carriage back is still with me, in a way.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They're beautiful machines, aren't they! No sound quite like it...
A machine for well trained operatives only
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: My fingers were never so strong as when I learned to use my Dad's Underwood!

What a great close-up of this vintage typewriter! How many children don't recognize what it is??!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it a beauty! I wonder.... it's frightening to think!
I occasionally see these old typewriters for sale in garage sales & second hand shops, Elizabeth. Love how you've presented it here.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I just love them - I'd have loved to have bought this - but I'm trying so hard not to buy any more "things"! smile
Maureen learnt to type on something like this in the late 50's., early 60's. except that but then I suspect the keys were lined up in straight rows.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I learned to type on my Dads old Underwood!! Wonderful machines!
Probably worth a dollar to two now smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I didn't look at the price - though I'd love to own it!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are really beautiful machines!
We're well ensconced now! smile
Have you picked your husband up yet Ellie.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: 1:30am Saturday! smile
