A great look at antique typewriters from the Martin Howard Collection.
The first commercially successful typewriter came to market in 1874. It was invented by Christopher Lathem Sholes, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The development of this machine was backed by Carlos Glidden and was manufactured by Remington & Sons. This typewriter became known as the “Sholes & Glidden Type Writer”. It is a beautifully decorated machine, covered in hand painted floral groupings.
Typing has come a long way and possibly the most useful thing I’ve ever learned how to do.
