Greetings, Mr. Steven Huang, co-producer of this past Sunday’s Type-IN NYC, took time to make some good photographs from the event.

That Olympia with the SS on the keyboard is quite something!
There is an amazing backstory to that machine, BTW.
Owner Bryan Kruk — bought it at a yard sale in NJ. It was in a field case painted US Army drab, with a name and what looked like a US Army serial on it.
He did some research and found it was brought back to the states by a G.I. This typewriter was captured by US forces and used during the war, when all typewriter production was stopped, and every machine was precious.
A rare example of a typewriter fighting on both sides of a conflict!
Big thanks to Bryan and his family for traveling a long way to the Type-IN and bringing this unique Olympia.
Mr. Kruk has two awesome typewriter sites:
both of which have some great pics and machines for sale as well.
