My Latest Crush...

...is this really sweet Oliver No. 9 Printype typewriter c. 1913. I love the the way the keys are configured in what are referred to as "bat ears". The striking action is mesmerizing.


The whole look of it is so early industrial...with so many levers and pulleys.


It's pretty rusty, crusty and dusty right now...but it still types!


I'm even enchanted its chubby little decal fellow.



Here is a similar one in action......


Ahhh...ain't love grand!
