Mail Order Monday - Remington Typewriter (1953)

Remington Typewriter Ad (1953)
Boy howdy, look at that! She's a beaut ain't she? For just $9.99 down and a monthly payment as low as  $7.44 you can own this fine typewriter and carrying case! Or, if you prefer the Quiet-riter model, payments are $8.32.

You can earn money at home in your spare time! How? I'm not sure, you'd have to read the included book "How To Earn Money at Home in Your Spare Time on Your Portable Typewriter." But it sounds like you can get paid to address envelopes and type up menus! Doesn't that sound fun? And best of all, you get to be your own boss!

When I was around 6 or 7 I started messing around on my mom's typewriter. It was very similar to the one shown here but probably 20+ years newer. It had an interesting mechanism that kept the typewriter locked in the case so it didn't bounce around while you were carrying it. They may be "portable" but they sure aren't light!
