|In this Basic Typing film from 1944|
a brief history of the typewriter is shown
which includes several machines which are housed in the Smithsonian.
I also like the fashion flash back this film displays.
A disturbing part of history is that typing and the employment of typists
was centrally focused on women & girls.
I was influenced by this cultural norm as a young girl.
Perhaps this is why I love typewriters to this day!
This is the second half of the Basic Typing Film
Please share with other typewriter & typing enthusiasts!
I'd also like to hear some of your earliest memories with typing
and on what type machine?
