The Last Typewriters

The last typewriter factory in the World closes!
Typewriters were invented around the year 1867 and from then on revolutionize the way people communicate, now the last company that was located in India will stop manufacturing them. Typewriters were still widely used in that country until recently.
Did you ever used a typewriter?

  3. I used my grandfathers typewriter when I was young. LOL'd whenever a letter appeared on the paper. Sigh. Good Old Memories.

    You'll live on forever, typewriters.

  4. I need one for my webdesign quest. Hope they won't get much more expensive.

    (Yes, I'll be typing out the entire site on a typewriter, then stick a jam-covered usb in between the papers and upload it to my computer. 9001 cookies if you got that refference.)

  12. This is kind of sad but hopeful at the same time, writing will be a completely different art form now. Everything must evolve

  37. QWERTY keyboards were actually designed for type writers to actually slow you down, so multiple keys or mistypes wernt as frequent! So we're all using keyboards designed to slow typing down ;)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. Not really designed to slow down, just make the most used button better reachable.

  53. When I was small I used a type writer to write little short stories. When I look back at them now, they look so silly to me. Sad to hear about the end of life of one of the greatest human inventions.
