… Of Once Upon a Time … woman confronts hunky guy about the mysterious box he totes around on the back of his motorcycle. He shows her —
“I’m a… Writer…” He adds, a bit pretentiously; oh, that clears up everything — not really…of course the logo has been removed — any ideas on the make and model? (confirmed as a REMINGTON ALL-NEW, ca. 1949 — Thanks Piotr & Don! — and of course, thanks to http://www.typewriterdatabase.com ) Wonder how the ad copy kids handled that model name, though? “Introducing the New, Remington All-New… it’s all new for you…” Um… Then they could bring back the Remington CLASSIC, like Coke did in that major marketing stumble.
So here’s the OLIVETTI Lettera 32, designed in 1963 by Marcello Nizzoli as an up date to his classic Lettera 22.
–and here’s a 2015 FUJI Declaration urban fixie/single speed bike.
Ok, here are the machines inside each of those cases–from Left to Right:
SCM “Galaxy; SCM “Sterling”; Facit; Singer “Scholastic”; Royal “Model P”; Remington “Portable Model One”, Royal “Sahara.”
My sincere apologies for not getting a pic of these machines lined up… too busy yakking with Messrs. Ardito and Kruk.
HOWEVER… I think every one of these machines is up on Mr. Bryan Kruk’s Typewriters 101 page in the FOR SALE section. Click here to check them out!
OK, here are their carapaces–what typewriters live inside these shells❓
Hometown Business Machines’ tech Michael Ardito had a meet-up at Trophy Bikes with Brian Kruk of Typewriters 101–here are the machines Mr. A worked on; seemed like a good oppty for a Case Study! Will post the “contents” in a day or two; let us know yr best guesses.
