Last post for April

Yep. More typewriters. My Underwood no. 5 went to the typewriter doctors office a few days after it's first appearance on my blog found here. At the typewriter doctors office (otherwise known as my grandpa's work shop) I cleaned it up and restored it to working condition. During it's operation I acquired two more of these wonderful writing machines from the past; an Olympia M9 from the 1970s and a standard portable Underwood typewriter from the 1930s. Also in this post- a vintage telephone that I believe my mom picked up at a garage sale a few years back. It was seriously calling out "take my picture, take my picture" so I did. :) Oh the randomness of collecting such items! (now my room, which is where I am storing all of these antiques, smells like an antique shop :)

Hi! The telephone looks like a vessel of calm with a touch of austerity. I love it.

I have a Depression-era Royal from 1932: http://paperexploits.wordpress.com/2010/04/25/meet-the-senior-royal-signet-senior-typewriter/
