The Chicago (1899)
Chicago Writing Machine Co., Chicago, USA

This Chicago is an early model, showing the patent dates and scrollwork on the front shield. The type is on an elongated cylinder, which moves back and forth and rotates to select the characters, then a hammer strikes from the back to make an even impression on the paper. Many cylinders were available with different fonts.
