That’s the All-Black Typewriter Team!

Complaint department: today I saw a nice old Remette at the Salvation Army. Most frustrating that they had it up for auction. Unsporting I say, contrary to the very spirit of thrift shops what? Spoiling all the fun they are!

  1. Yes, I see what you mean. A Baby Grand!

  2. That’s a very lovely Corona. It indeed has something piano-like to it.

    About the black/red ribbons. Yes, the ribbon selector shows that it could be emplaced. But, all black ribbons are more useful I think. You can use more of the ribbon!
