Atop a cabinet in my room rested an old Underwood typewriter.My mother brought it home after one of her antiquing trips, sat it there and it hadn’t moved since.
One night not long ago, I happened to catch a glimpse of it out of the corner of my eye.
I was suddenly curious. My imagination began to run wild.
It led to The typewriter Part I, in which I thought about what the typewriter would say if it could react to what it saw from the top of my cabinet.
Once the post was finished, my curiosity remained.
The typewriter was taken from its perch atop my cabinet and moved to the dining room table.
After I searched the Internet to find where the serial number of the typewriter was located, my mama and began to try to find out when it was made.
From the list we found on the web before we gave up, we gathered the old typewriter may have been built sometime between the 1930s and 40s.
I think it was probably made just prior to or during World War II, but I’m guessing off of a quick Google search and I would like to know more.
Does anyone know a good place to find out just how old an old typewriter is?
