Musings from the desert written on vintage machines
because you mention turtle-waxing, and yet your pics are nice and shiny gloss black?Very nice yard sale find there! Shall we declare this the start of Fall Yard Sailing Season? :D
I think it's safe to call the season open.And the waxing would have taken place post-type. So that's not it :)
Although you're on the right track...
Sweet! I really love that decal.
Me too! Here's what the address looks like now:https://maps.google.com/maps?q=240+E+86th+St,+New+York,+NY&hl=en&ll=40.778205,-73.952511&spn=0.006849,0.016512&sll=40.777958,-73.952634&layer=c&cbp=13,200.66,,0,0&cbll=40.778205,-73.952511&hnear=240+E+86th+St,+New+York,+10028&t=m&z=17&iwloc=A&panoid=e4MiYJiIvysq84I7muIOMQ&source=gplus-ogsbI get the feeling it had more character when there was a typewriter retailer there.
What a great find! Your typewriter looks new. I have used grommets, bumpers and feed for speaker enclosures for my typewriters.
You waxed, took pictures, changed to bicolor ribbon, then retyped.
Aha, I think Anonymous figured it out!
Wow! Talk about a typewriter! This machine is not one to leave behind indeed. Beautiful!
Yes, it's quickly become my favorite machine. The best descriptor I can come up with is "elegant."
