My first typewriter was a Silver Reed. A manual portable typewriter. You know, in those far forgotten days before laptops and i pads.
It looked like this one
It had a lid with a handle..
Oh how I loved it.
I typed letters, stories, poems. One of the keys stuck. I think it was the E. But I still loved it.
I’ve been thinking lately, it would be nice to own a manual typewriter again, I would like to type some letters…..just for the fun.
Of course, to get in the real spirit of the occasion, it would be best to sit at a vintage desk to do such typing. No?
Maybe even with a cup of tea in a china cup and a bourbon biscuit I might just have some of those…
Sigh……I can just see myself.
Does anyone have a manual typewriter? How much do you love it?
It’s been like spring here today!
