The Amazing Story of Ilya Zorn (and her gold Royal typewriter).


Ilya Zorn - date unknown.



Ilya Zorn's 1949 Royal Quiet de Luxe










No matter how the machine looks, always check the typeface!




Double Pigeon Chinese Manual Typewriter form the early 1970's.

People think it's some kind of printing press.

There are 2450 characters in this type tray.

There are 1750 characters in this additional type tray.


I really like this dealer sticker from Miami.

A Hermes Baby from Hong Kong.

A History Class With A Lot Of History In It.



Each row of desks are a different style






Zoom in and try to identify as many objects as you can.






This Monarch No.3 works great again.





This is one cool setup. A typewriter with it's own stand.



These 3-bank machines are neat little compact machines.




I love the thumb wear mark on the space bar.


This folding Corona is off to Pittsburgh.

Does anybody know what application this keyboard is for?



When you buy a lot of machines, sometimes they come with stuff.
