Here comes the weekend! Don't waste a minute! This logo appears on Remington Typewriter letterhead from 1883. The motto "To Save Time is to Lengthen Life" was used to promote the adoption of typewriters in offices and businesses across the country. A salesman's pitch for the Remington Standard reads, "As a saving of labor, time, money, and nervous force, it's value can hardly be over estimated." Nervous force? Well, we guess the clanking of typewriter keys can be somewhat soothing .... #letterhead#typewriters#ephemera#logo#awesomeletterhead

Was blown away. "Do you want to see that typewriter we found at the house we've just bought", a co-teacher at my school.... FOR SURE. She brought it, I felt in love. Nice little machine in a very clean condition. But best of all, in the case I found: a written document for a "golden anniversary marriage laudatio", a letter written to an old friend and a travel journal in letter-form of a trip to Russia. Some old erasers, some tipp-ex-whitestripes and some concept papers. That personal goods make it so awesome. Then she gifted the machine to me, "the typewriter will live on under your hands"..... Speechless. #typewriters#olympia#storyofmylife#myanaloglife
