Smith Corona Corsair Vintage Manual Typewriter
Made in England. This tan-colored relatively lightweight portable is perfect for taking anywhere.
Many folks like to type in the woods or at a park where cell phones don't grow. When you are surrounded by nature, thoughts come easily - focus flows unopposed.
Made sometime in the 60's, I have used this particular machine at a local farmers market just to see people's reaction. I had to explain that when I write, which I actually was, the manual typewriter allows me total immersion in what I am writing - relatively distraction free.
They would usually leave at that point.
But... don't be affraid to look a little crazy. No one ever fell in love with their computer, but they do get attached to their typewriters.
Mary Adelson, who owned a Manhatten typewriter shop with very famous customers once said "They are more than just machines".
