Today we decided to visit a thrift shop that is about an hour from us. We hadn't been there in quite a while but we had such a blast. Tucked away behind some dishes, I spied this typewriter. After a quick ribbon fix, it was perfect. It's extremely heavy and is in need of a good cleaning but I love it.
Josh did a quick internet search and found that Underwood is still in business selling ribbons and even restored typewriters. Also they listed a little history about the typewriter and if our model is the right year, it could have been used in the Army.
I love the history and sound of old typewriters and this will make a lovely addition to my studio!
