Western Electric Early Typewriter
« on: October 28, 2017, 10:50:02 AM »
I was attending an antique typewriter show in Fairmont West Virginia and the show host had this on display. It's some type of early typewriter and the decal on it says TYPE WRITER WESTERN ELECTRIC.

That looks like a Sholes and Glidden patent typerwriter.  I looked on Bing to see what they had for example pics and this came up in the bunch.

The typewriter I posted is located in the Chestnut Ridge Typewriter Museum located in Fairmont West Virginia. Myself and a friend attended an antique typewriter show there last weekend. There are about 800 typewriters on display. Well worth a visit.
