RTTA: I dream lo-tech edition

You all know who Ton is, I'm pretty sure, but if not this is the time to head over to I dream lo-tech and discover all his fantastic typecasts and superb photography, with lots of the items he discusses in this post displayed - particularly Mid-Century Modern furniture and objects. His new Triumph Perfekt - and cursive at that - is a beauty!

Retro Tech Thrift Adventures (RTTA) Q&A Series

A thrift store find from this summer...

Yes, it was a fabulous Brosette... I had one before that I didn't end up keeping either, although I blogged about it here.

While the first Brosette had a serial number in the 38,000s, this one was manufactured a bit later.

I didn't recognize which typewriter it was at first, seeing this case in the thrift store. My first Brosette had had a vinyl case that was terribly battered by the time it reached me, but this was just fantastic.

Gorgeous, isn't it? I don't mind not having kept it, though, we will (knock on wood) be moving in less than two weeks and I am already dreading the typewriter procession up and down stairs. So, one less to worry about is just fine by me.

I was pleasantly surprised not only by how rare of a find it was, but also by the excellent condition the machine was in. So photogenic, too!

Decals intact, too.
