TYPEWRITER TRIVIA

I listed this typewriter, a Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven,


in this Etsy shop today. This booklet comes with it.


I was trying to find a date on the booklet to confirm the age of the typewriter. Alas, I found none. I did however notice this article that I found rather interesting.

Fascinating. 159 years from first patent to first actual typewriter. Christopher Latham Sholes, "Father of the Typewriter", 1866. Got it. I may need to know that when I go on Jeopardy;)
