Entering the Communication collection at the Musee des Arts et Metiers in Paris
Very early Remington, with decals for the most part nicely preserved
The Remington 1 (dated 1873) is actually a Sholes & Glidden, as you can see here.
AWERTY - now there's a keyboard layout I haven't come across yet. An error, perhaps?
Speaking of inscrutable keyboard layouts... don't even get me started on the Hammond :)
The folding Corona 3; ever popular even in Paris.
Doesn't get much more unusual than the Lambert; as for most of these typewriters, I was glad Mr. Perrier had already given us a close look and demonstration of their mechanisms in Lausanne.
At the flea market, this Olivetti M40 wishes all a "Happ Hour".
Underwood standard (with plastic keys, oddly enough) livens up a stationery store.
Hard to see, but there's a Royal typewriter lurking in this window, beside the books and underneath a taxidermied crow (don't know and didn't ask... a reference to The Raven, perhaps?).
