Great news story on Gramercy Typewriter Co., NYC

"A great majority are brought in by the younger people, who are sort of rediscovering an old manual — the Royal, the Underwood, the Olivetti, or a Remington typewriter. They bring them to us and they have to be cleaned and washed and completely gone over to put them into tip-top condition, and I'm still doing that. Much to my surprise, a lot of the younger kids still want them."

-- Paul Schweitzer, Gramercy Typewriter Co.

It was an article about these younger people in the NYTimes last April that propelled me once again into the wonderful world of typewriters.

What goes around, comes around.
