Great pictures, thanks for sharing! That was quite a crowd, you all must have made a lovely racket :)ReplyDelete
Love the picture of the little girl in pink typing on a Princess 100; somehow, that strikes me as the perfect image for that typewriter!
Love it - even the kids are getting involved!ReplyDelete
Great pictures, thanks for sharing! Wow and as I look as Adwoa's now I see she has the same response :) Really wish I could have been thereReplyDelete
Those are some sweet pictures. Thanks for posting them.ReplyDelete
Adwoa - Good eye. It's actually a Princess 200 but from what I can tell the 100, 200 and 300 look very similar. That thing received quite a few comments, both about it's small size and about the German layout. The only thing wrong with it is that the return lever spring is broken. I've not yet been able to find a decent replacement so one just has to move it back to the correct position after every return; not too big of a problem.
Rino - It was indeed pretty awesome to have so many kids and teenagers use these things. I'm hoping they all start asking their parents for machines of their own.
Dude, in one of your previous posts I mentioned that I would give you a needed ribbon yesterday...I brought it with me but completely forgot to give it to you. Do you still need one?ReplyDelete
I got a kick out of the woman in the red sweater who so enjoyed your old Corona. Would have been nice to have more time to talk to her. She had lots of typewriter stories, and I only heard snippets in passing. For one, I believe she said the typewriters at her town's high school were donated to the military during WW II, because the military was short. And she was having a great time reminiscing over various typewriters she'd had over the years...very cool!ReplyDelete
Isn't Strikethru the coolest person you've ever met? It is my opinion that this is so.ReplyDelete
Those pictures are great! I'm getting nostalgic for the type-in, even though it was just yesterday.ReplyDelete
Aw Ryan! Thanks!
Wait, so y'all are actual, real flesh-and-blood people?! This is sooooo weird.ReplyDelete
That looks like a blast. If I weren't a couple thousand miles away, and painfully introverted, and if I didn't have a tendency to hyperventilate in public, I SO would have been there.
I hear that Duffy - I was so far in the corner they didn't even interview me.ReplyDelete
