I don't know what's more interesting, that the shop inserted its ad in the shift key, or that the phone number is made of only four digits! Wow! Perhaps that insert has been there since the machine was new.
What noble work. I stopped by the The Urban Legend Institute's FB page and checked out all the typewriter photos. If you are the "typewriter guy", it looks like they keep you busy.
It's cool that you're still at it, Typewriter Doctor.
My Olivetti is working beautifully! And, um... I've aquired a few more, one of which will be visiting you sometime lsoon. Lol. Thanks so much. I was going to come by and check out the sm3 but it was apparently gone before I even knew it was for sale. Maybe next time! :)
Oh, and The Urban Legend Institute and Word Play are doing amazing things. I tried to get my daughter into their creative writing sessions, as she's a great writer. Unfortunately, she is too shy to share her work in a group setting. I'd like to take a session for adults.
It was just the same for my own daughter.
Great work, Richard. Those old Coronas are amazingly stout for being so petite.I recently picked up a 1941 Triumph Perfekt with a sticker indicating that it was either sold or serviced by Typette Company, 115 Rogers, Brooklyn, N.Y. NEvins 8-7266. I got it to fix it up and put it to use at a workshop -- details here: bit.ly/1yjvENE -- happening 6 blocks from where the store used to be. It's come home.Come to think of it, your Royal is only about 90 miles from home.
