A little about the Underwood Typewriter Company

The Underwood Typewriter Company was headquartered in New York City, New York. They produced what is considered the first widely successful, modern typewriter and by 1939 Underwood had produced five million machines! . Underwood dominated the American typewriter market for many years. In fact, the Underwood Model No. 5 was one of the most successful, four million of them alone were made. Many of these still exist today, exhibiting the quality, precision and its nearly-indestructible workmanship of this beautiful  and classic machine.

Many classics of modern literature were written on an Underwood.  The traditional look of type on the page comes straight from an Underwood and the machine was a favorite of such writers as Raymond Chandler, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner. 

You should type using your beautiful Underwood, just to experience what it was like to be a typist in the days before electric typewriters and computers.
