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.

For more information and examples of telegrapher's portable typewriters, see my 2017 post on the topic.

  1. A 3-bank Corona Flattop, who knew!

    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.
