Auction Adventure & A Tale Of Two Remingtons
Cat lamp. Not as ugly as the wood carved 3 foot tall Betsy Ross lamp we have, but still ridiculous.
Check writing Remington Portable 2
Check out how huge the typeslug is on that. You actually have to space twice just to get beyond it!
Nasty Remington 6. Someone saw fit to paint several parts of it a reddish color.
No, this is not one of those blank keyed teaching typewriters.
First of the nests.
From another angle. I think it accentuates the rust very nicely.
Another nest, this time attached to the frame of the typewriter.
I think it says "This machine is protected by US and Foreign patents" underneath all of that. Can't be sure, though.
Hope you enjoyed. As I said, I will try and get the next journal entry finished up tomorrow. It was a long, long day, with a whole bunch of sightings. By the time we arrived at the motel, it was too late to get it all done.
Thanks for reading, and keep those typebars swinging.
