This weeks’s Sepia Saturday prompt is a typewriter. As much as I love computers, there’s something romantic about old typewriters. While I wouldn’t buy one or in most cases prefer to use one, if I found my old one, I’d keep it and probably use it to type envelopes or possibly a letter.
Yet as the video above shows, a lot of kids have little idea of how to type with one since they’ve only seen them in old movies.
I remember that my aunt had a Selectric typewriter and I thought that was “the coolest,” so “easy” to correct mistakes.
My first typewriter looked a lot like this.
