More telegrapher's portable typewriters

Bob Freshwater has sent me these interesting photos of a Royal P (ca. 1930) adapted to handle telegraph forms and a ca. 1952 instruction session on the use of the Smith-Corona Typewriter Telegraph 8B. He says that these machines were used by the UK General Post Office.

    That training-image shows so much about England in 1950; the once grand room with parquetry and then visible in the mirror that clock and lamp hanging where once must have been a chandelier.
