That last one is a good excuse for me to visit friends in Traverse City!
What model typewriter is in the second poster? And who is the model in the second poster?
Nice page ads!
btw seamus, looks like an underwood 5 to me.
Seamus, the typewriter model is a Continental, recognizable by its twin carriage return levers. As for the female model and her own twin features, no comment.
@Richard: card holders? Ribbon spools? The mind boggles.
Richard - a Continental it is - that explains the wider area up top and the curly return lever (i didnt even notice the 2nd return lever). Yesterday I wasnt so sure about it being an underwood 5 - i remember looking twice and thrice at it since it did look a bit odd in to be an underwood 5, but then i remembered that there are different editions of the 5 and that maybe this could be one of those. And upon closer inspection of this ad, i realize that this is a contemporary photo dressed up to look pre-war... although i definitely think that the girl might be out of place in the 1930s :)
