History of writing

Since more than 5,000 years we can watch mankind writing, trying to multiply experiences. Actually we have an unique technical explosion, but we still should feel deep respect for the first steps of our ancestors. I adore Martin Howard for his energy, to collect antique typewriters!

  6. Very, very interesting!
    I’ve never seen anything quite like this Frizz! :)


  7. I would have had no idea this was a typwriter without your caption of explanation! 1889 was the year, when my great-grandmother was 28 years old. I wonder if she ever used one of these.


  8. I’ve never seen that kind of typewriter. Fascinating.
    I hope the handwritten note or card never becomes obsolete. There is still something special about receiving one of those.


  9. What a cool typewriter. I have never seen one like this, so thanks for the excellent share, Frizz. I see by the date on it, it is from 1889. Wouldn’t our ancestors be amazed with how things have changed over the last 120 years?


  10. It would take forever to write a blog on one of these!


  11. Hi,
    What a fantastic photo of an antique typewriter, I have never seen one like that before, and it looks like it has been restored to it’s former glory, just magnificent. :)


  12. Cool post Frizz. We have to give props to our ancestors and the inventions that are the genesis of our present technology.


  13. I love this old technical Masterpieces
    Here is another example :

  14. Cool, what an interesting typewriter!!


  15. This is really an old oldy!Very interesting.The first thing I bought After receiving my first pay was a portable typewriter (still very heavy to carry I must say.)


  16. As a long term lover of the written word ( who can barely type… ) and a lover of manmade mechanisms, I find this post very interesting. Thank you!


Hearing from you makes my day!
