Remember the old typewriter?

How many have you played with it or were you interested in typing words with it?

I used the word ‘played’ because many of you, like me, must have been young when it was in use and many more might have only heard of it or seen a picture on the internet.

Typewriters are not used today. Computers have replaced it totally that it is an object found only in antique shops probably.

Typists and stenographers were very much in demand. It was the norm to study typing after high school. Many young people boasted of white-collar jobs after they earned their typing and stenography diplomas and migrated to the cities. This was from 1950 to 1970 period.

With the onset of the computer and the widespread use of the Windows Operating System, things changed rapidly and the typewriter is now ancient.
