Hey Seth, ...what a CLASSIC typewriter. Mine is not as old. My wife gave me one back in 1972 and I still have it, (a Smith-Corona Classic 12, manual ...non-electric) and wouldn't part with it. Typed many pages on that thing. Used it until I purchased my first computer in early '91 a 2mb HP with an Epson 24 pin dot matrix printer (I can still remember the noise that printer made).

Seeing that old Royal brings back a lot of memories. I learned how to type on one of those back in high school. Why, I was even on my H.S. typing team in district competition. Woowee! In your photo I can identify many of the old settings, such as the margin, the paper adjusting lever, etc. Changing the ribbon in those things, the little round wheels, used to give me fits.
The first newspaper where I worked we had a flat-bed printing press, made in the 1880s. There was nothing quite like the awesome whoosh of the massive rollers on the press passing over the type and gorging newsprint. At full speed, it cranked out about two newspapers a second, from what I remember.

Oh yeah, I forgot. The typewriter was made of REAL steel, not plastic. They were heavy - and meant to last, not ditched in a couple of years. Trying to send e-mail on them was quite a challenge ...

That's one unique writing space and on the go. Great for those bathroom inspirations.-DavidG
