QWERTY is the most common modern-day keyboard layout. The name comes from reading the first six keys appearing on the top left letter row of the keyboard.

I've been an Executive Assistant for my 40+ year career, and I've always wanted an old manual typewriter to display to represent that.   The really old Underwoods are quite pricey.   I was in a new store in Port Perry on the weekend (when I was lunching with the ladies) and there, on the bottom shelf, was this pretty little manual Smith-Corona typewriter.
The price was surprisingly reasonable, so it came home with me.  It now lives on the sofa table under the window in my family room.
I won't be giving up my laptop anytime soon .... but it doesn't have that lovely "zing" when you hit the carriage return!

  1. It is a cute piece! In grade 9 typing class was on typewriters but by grade 10 we had computer keyboarding.
