Some indications on Twitter that actor Tom Hanks may be turning into a collector of these historic items:
Typewriter of the day. Royal ‘Apollo 10’ model from 1969. Electric that got us to the moon! It’s noisy but types fine. Hanx
Do you think there’s a movie about typewriters coming?
Confess, Dear Reader — are you taken in by the magic, charm and dinging carriage-return bell of these old typewriters? Do you remember the machine you used to use? Do you still use a typewriter? Minds soaking in the Bathtub want to know.
Grateful tip of the old scrub brush to Judy Crook @Jude2004.
