Joan, Thanks so much for your compliment and the vote, too!

V and F as Ive been doing as we feature images in groups... Cant make many comments due to disabled fingers, but this one caught me. Have been using Underwood's since 1937, by 1945 had my own in the Army as a cryptographer we had to be VERY accurate. The typewriters we used came with ONLY capital letters and numbers and no punctuation was used. For whatever reason, they were called a "Mill" in the army, maybe something to do with only having CAPS..... Typed only five letter code groups, ten groups to a line. Making one typo, could mean a message could not be decoded, so accuracy was more important than speed, but we still were required to type more than 35 words per minute... Brings back a lot of memories . . . these are only a few, others were typing captions on a strip of paper, the Who, What, When, Why, and Where for photos and sticking them to the edge of photos with rubber cement when submitting them to Boston Papers for publication...

Nadine & Bob, I am delighted that my photo could spark a memory from the past for you, and appreciate you taking the time for such an informative comment and compliment. Many thanks for your support and featuring my photo in the Artist's News Group!

Cheri, I followed your lead today! I voted for about 20 of your images, and comments and fav'd ......all that, but I just wanted you to know I picked this as the image in the group for the post display photo. Not sure what the technical words are for that! Gorgeous image... good title for this too!

Cheri Randolph replied:

Thanks, Kym! I really appreciate it!

Excellent work,v

Cheri Randolph replied:

Mark, Thanks for your nice compliment and the vote too!

Cheri, Not sure how I would have missed this one! I love old phones and typewriters! Wouldn't this make a great poster or greeting card for a writer or journalist! Voted and fav'd

Jane, thanks for commenting. I'm glad that this brought back some fond memories.

Great image! Love those old vintage typewriters and that telephone! My grandparents had one just like it.

Jouko, I appreciate your feature of my image, "Superseded" in the Art from the Past Group.

Wow, does this bring back some memories. My second husband was still actually using one of these old Underwoods back in the early 80's. He was a writer and an entertainment critic who had his own radio and TV show. I remember him clicking away on his typewriter and was amazed at the speed he had on the keys. Great shot. Vote.

Cheri Randolph replied:

Hi Kristin, thanks for your comment and story. I learned to type on one of these myself. My dad found one in an abandoned office and brought it home for me to practice. I could get about 50/wpm. I appreciate your visit

Cheryl, glad to have your input on this one plus the V/F!

great shot!! V/F!

Thanks, Joan. I thought so too & I enjoyed finding them there.
