My purchase today at the car boot sale :
Modern technology is all good, without it I wouldn’t be ‘talking’ to you now. However there is something to be said about the traditional methods, one of which is the typewriter. I am very pleased to own this piece of ‘retro’ technology (which I have to say was considered portable!) and can’t help but wonder about the owner. Did they use it for letters to the front in WW2. Or was it used by a politician to write reports of current affairs. Or even a journalist starting out, taping away at the keys in the hope of making the headlines. Maybe a humble author bashed out a bestseller burning the midnight oil. The possibilities are endless. At 85 years old I’m sure if it could talk it would tell us a story or two!!
