Typewriter of the moment: Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath at her typewriter

Sylvia Plath, author and poet, at her typewriter - photographer unknown to me

Is it a Royal typewriter?  Why is it so many photos of people at typewriters show them outdoors — and will there be many pictures of authors at their computers, let alone at their computers outdoors?

Mystery solved?  Update December 30, 2011 — looking at the photo of Rob’s Hermes, in comments below, it sure looks to me that Plath’s machine is a Hermes.


Oh, but the conservatives will say it’s unfair . . .
