Oh, I remember the sound of this machine well. Spent hundreds of hours in front of one in a past life.

This photo transports me back to another time and place, when I used to work for a Japanese import fabric company in the Empire State building. I was a secretary for one of the salesmen there. None of the guys could pronounce my name. They called me "Erizabiz-san." Every Friday, the american staff was allowed to take three samples each from the back room. I had the most beautiful pillows and curtains then! Gee -- even way back then, it was all about the fabric! Happy memories!

ooh, this takes me back.
also, during recent rooting through closets, I found not one, but two, actual typewriters --and was tempted to Use Them.
yikes!
