Retro Christmas Typewriter Ads

I have a softspot for Typewriters. I often choose typewriters as my photo theme at the Flea Market. I don't collect them (no space or I would), but I do take photos of them.. and occasionally post here on Mystery Fanfare. I also love Retro Ads, so here's the marriage of both... retro typewriter advertisements for the holidays!

The Typewriter: Perfect gift for Christmas from the 20s through the 70s. Happy Holidays!

Janet, you should take a look at Richard Polt's The Typewriter Revolution (Countryman Press, 2015), a handsome coffee-table book(it even comes with an integral bookmark that mimics a black/red ribbon)celebrating the history and allure of the machines. Richard is a typewriter connoisseur and collector as well as a professor of philosophy & the editor of the newsletter of the Harry Stephen Keeler society.
