There is something about the sleek black metal, the over-sized upright frame, the click of the keys, and ding when you reach the end of a line….old fashioned typewriters may have been functionally superseded by computers, but their ergonomic and aesthetic functions will never be replaced.
My 3 favorite old fashioned typewriters
The Underwood typewriter was first produced in 1895 by John Underwood, who was the son of a typewriter ribbon manufacturer. These typewriters, including one my grandmother used to type up news stories for her local newspaper, dominated the market for decades, and are nearly worthless today, even as an antique. But regardless of value, these typewriters are certainly handsome.
