St. Vinnie smiles upon me

As explained on The Typewriter Database, this Brother design is designated as type JP-7 and was introduced in 1975. The one I found dates from 1977.

I've found that Armor All wipes are a convenient way to get a good shine on plastic or paint. 
The stuff does take a while to dry.

Now the Kmart is ready to speak to someone else. Its companion at The Urban Legend Institute, the Olympia SM9 in the background, also dates from 1977.


  1. Love it Richard. Great post and pics!

  2. Heh, I passed up a Sears branded JP7 last year for $8. I was actually impressed with the heft and touch, but the late-70's Sears brands are sin ugly.

  3. Nice typewriter. I hope it makes a typist happy.

  4. I can see how the color would attract people. I quite like it myself. Nice find.
