Warning! This is going to be a very long blogpost! Read part 1 here.

Part 1 ended where the typewriters start, so it seemed like a good idea to put them in a separate blog post. Because there were so many and I made so many pictures, this post will be lacking some textual references. ;-)

Okay, this is not exactly a typewriter, but it was very interesting. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture from the name and inventor.

There it is, the Hansen writing ball! First time I’ve seen one, except for those at my computer screen of course.

This was also very interesting. I did see and touched one before, but these look different. Wooden models of how a typewriter is put together. I don’t know if these are originals or rebuilds though.

This is where it gets a bit fuzzy. There were so many typewriters! I can not recall in which order I’ve seen them because I started making pictures with TWO camera’s in order to keep up with everything. First, some standards:

Groma model N

Emerson no 3

Fox 23

Monarch 2

This one definitely looks better than my machine:
Royal 1

Sun 2

Remington 10

Continental

Underwood 5

Underwood 1

A couple of overviews from the exhibition:
Remington exhibition

Noiseless exhibition

Duplex exhibition

Next up, the portables.

TL:DR The Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum is very impressive! If you are ever in the Netherlands or Germany, make sure you have a spare day to spend in Paderborn. You’ll regret it if you don’t.
