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.
