A typewriter is a mechanical or electromechanical device with keys that, when pressed, cause characters to be printed on a medium, usually paper. Typically one character is printed for keypress, and the machine prints the characters by making ink impressions of type elements similar to the sorts used in movable type letterpress printing.
After their invention in the 1860s, typewriters quickly became indispensable tools for practically all writing other than personal correspondence. They were widely used by professional writers, in offices, and for business correspondence in private homes. By the end of the 1980s, word processors and personal computers had largely displaced typewriters in most of these uses. ....(from wikipedia)

    My mother and father were of very modest means. I remember when they bought their first typewriter, in 1956. It was an Underwood, and it was manufactured in 1922. It wore like "iron," and I learned to type on it. I wish we had it now. Wonderful entry.
