I typed as rapidly as possible to see which were best for speed work.

Swintec sighting (sorry no pics)
Wednesday, September 11, 2013
No one approached me at all with the typewriter, but I *was* in the side room, not the main seating area, and I was typing for only a couple of minutes at a time.
Here is a similar presentation by the same speaker from last year:
The Art & Science of Reading
and here is that blog link:

Just a couple of things from today.
First, my ham license renewal came in the mail. Hard to believe it's been 10 years already, all in the 21st century.
And lastly, to get back to typewriters, I saw a different trailer for the new movie "The Family" today and couldn't find it until the creepy targeted ads based on recent activity plopped it on my facebook feed. So I clipped an image. This trailer was the first I'd seen mentioning the MC's memoirs as a plot point. It opens for half a second on his hands on a typewriter. Because they are in France in the movie I thought it was a Japy, but the key shapes aren't quite right. What do you think?

The correct answer was Smith-Corona Vantage. I sure wondered if the key design was an infringement on Olivetti's Praxis design.
Here's a better-framed pic stolen (uncredited) from an ebay listing because turnabout's fair play.

I went to Goodwill after, and found an electric typewriter I didn't bring home (besides being electric, I plugged it in and didn't get a hum so it was more a doorstop at that point, though I may have tried a dead outlet), but I thought it would be a good guessing game. Who made it? I'll save the revealing pic for next post.
First clue, here's the keyboard.

|Interestingly, it has both dollar and pound signs, yet is still a German layout. I wonder if it was for a traveling correspondent of some variety.|
