Caligraph 2 (1882) 2: keyboard

A closer view of the keyboard; notice the different key layouts for upper (black) and lower (white) case, which surely must have been confusing. [more...]

Hartford 2 (1896) 3: Front View

An overall view of this typewriter. The best way to photograph artefacts that are behind glass is to touch the camera lens to the glass, but that unfortunately restricts the shots one can make. [more...]

Crandall New Model (1886) 1: close-up

Victorian machinery was often richly decorated, but this is a truly magnificent example of decals on black enamal. You see similar work in some older Singer sewing machines. [more...]

Crandall New Model (1886) 5: the type element

Here you can see the cylinder with the type on it (just this side of the roller). Presumably one could change the cylinder to get different typefaces. [more...]

[picture: Crandall New Model (1886) 6: the ribbon]

Crandall New Model (1886) 6: the ribbon

The spools for the ribbon; the ribbon is not actually threaded over the type cylinder here, but you can see the small rollers that would hold it next to the paper, just this side of the roller. [more...]
