So I've Started a Collection of Typewriters...

I just added a new typewriter to my collection of two this afternoon. It is an Underwood no. 5. After doing some research on it, I found that back in the 1920s it was like the Windows XP of it's day meaning it is a very common typewriter. I've added a set up photo and two images of my first member of my collection - a Sears model from the 1970s.
