Yet another Type-In...




Onionskin typewriter paper in use at Café La cuna, Basel. Three Urania typewriters in action. Groma Kolibri alias Neckermann Brillant Junior on three-legged chair. This awesome post was brought to you by the mighty Typosphere

Those are some great looking typewriters. I've been debating getting a Smith-Corona with that particular script. The symbol your are calling pence is mostly called the cent or cents key in the States. $ dollar(s) and my PC has no cent(s) key. All of my typewriters have both.

Very nice, I feel sorry I'm not there! I might travel to the Netherlands next year, I hope I can swing a Switzerland side trip. ( :

The white and black machine in the middle, what is it?

I came close to a drink disaster recently as well. One of these days I will give my machines enough elbow room.

Bill, thanks for the clarification on US money! :)
Ton, the three machines in use on the top pictures are all Uranias, the first (as seen from the camera) is a Breitwagen model, the second is a (probably) repainted Luxusmodell with tabs and the last one has an epic Fraktur typeface - at least I believe it does.
Dwayne, these drinks are really dangerous...
Peter and Georg, it was very nice meeting you for our Type-In yesterday!
