starting to catch up

Typed on the Royal Portable

Here's a photo from the newspaper (the News Tribune, which inexplicably removed "Tacoma" from its name some years ago) of local journalist-turned-historian Murray Morgan, with his typewiter. and sporting a particularly dashing hairstyle.  Given recent developments in the typosphere, I'd like a closer look at that watch too.

  1. the caption to the news photo calls it a smith-corona. Huh?? I've never seen a smith in that body style. Obviously you're right, it's a Royal QDL or one of the variants thereon.

    1. That's probably like it's in Switzerland - if somebody doesn't know what brand a typewriter is, it's a Hermes.
