Aging Gracefully.

This particular model was born in 1942. My late grandfather bought it when he went to graduate school in the US in 1947-48. Whole bunch of people since then have done two finger typing on it. 

For the last several years in has been in the loft in our house.

Today's computer n laptop keyboards may have fading letters but this particular one is still going strong close to 65 years n counting.....

  1. Brought back many fond memories of my Dad and his typewriter. Beautiful shots.

  2. These photos certainly brought back lots of memories of typing classes in high school! Terrific captures for the day, Pankaja! Hope you have a lovely evening!
