Photo Of Old Typewriters And Link To Typewriter History And Facts

Here is a photo of old-time typewriters from the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History.

Here is an excellent page of history and facts about typewriters.

It seems the idea of the typewriter goes back to 1714. 

The museum is very well done. Here is the link to see what they have on exhibit.

  1. There is a book out re. typewriters – sometime in the last year, can’t remember the name. Did the Corpus Christi museum have the book on display? Perhaps some of its collection is mentioned.

  2. Should I ever go to Corpus Christi, I will check out the museum. Liked what I saw on the web site.

  4. I have an old typewriter that is in it’s original box. It is a monarch pioneer. Would like to know if it is worth anything. It is in perfect working condition. Thank you.
