When I was in high school, my Grade 9 home room was in the typing room. We started each day in Home Room for roll call before heading out to respective classes. Our home room teacher always wanted quiet while he passed on daily news and took the daily roll call but being the unruly kids we were back then the typewriter in front of each of us was just too much of a noise making temptation. It had bells, rollers and lots of keys and lots of kids in the class to push a button or ding a bell. It was hard for the teacher to tell which of the 30 some typewriters was the guilty party!
I also took typing in school, and learned on a manual typewriter to type. We had a cover that was placed over the keys to hide them and our hands went under the cover while typing. I learned to type this way, consequently I am a touch typer, and do not have to look at the keys to type. In fact if I do look, I make mistakes!!
Now I see these typewriters in antique shops and think like this one they bring back fond memories of simple times, they hold fond memories of simple times and have taught me lessons I still remember to this day! That can't be obselete!
