Today's third London Type-In was a success, with four maniacs in attendance:
yours truly, Adriana Chua from Singapore (who got the ball rolling on this meeting),
Bikethru, and Jim Pennington.
Adriana brought a folding Corona in great shape which she used to write a letter. There's a group of 14 Singaporean typewriter collectors who have a letter-writing club. Singapore is unusual in having a relatively large number of typewriter collectors per capita and in the fact that they're almost all women.
Jim brought a Smith-Corona Clipper this time to take the minutes.
He also brought an Arabic Optima that he found on the street in Alexandria some time ago.
Yes, it types proportionally, like my Arabic typewriters.
Adriana made a discovery:
Bikethru has a commentary on his story from yesterday.
And the minutes.
I actually did receive some apologies from typewriter artist Keira Rathbone, who has been very busy
and unable to make the long trip to these type-ins.
