Antique Graphics Wednesday – Underwood Typewriter

This image of an Underwood typewriter came from
a 1912 Etude magazine advertisement.

I have a very similar Underwood typewriter and these things are beasts.
Mine is so heavy and actually made the leg of a drum table collapse
that I had it setting on!  Mine is a No. 18 Underwood, so the
top of it is longer than the No. 5.

You can see many more images I’ve posted in previous weeks

by clicking on the tab “Antique Graphics to Print”, located under my header.
I’ll be sharing at these parties this week:

  1. Love your typewriter 🙂 & that is a cool typewriter graphic 🙂

  2. This is one of my favorite vintage graphics you have posted. I love the old typewriters-would love to break down and buy one someday instead of just oogling pictures. I will definitely file this graphic away.
    Thanks so much!

  3. What a striking graphic! And your typewriter is so unusual… I’ve never seen one with such a long carriage! xoxo

  4. Wow! I just purchased an Underwood this spring! It looks exactly like tho one on the image! 😀

  5. Gorgeous typewriter. Looks just like the one I have. And you are so right about them being beasts! It’s so heavy. 🙂

  6. We have an LC Smith & bros #5 made in Syracuse NY 1911….needs a little refurbishing, but looks like the Underwood…love your graphic and of course your typewriter too!

  7. Can I obtain permission to use the 1912 Underwood typewriter picture above for limited use? Ed
