Description

A black and white poster of old antique typewriter showing traditional QWERTY keyboard.

When you think about it, typing on a computer is a magical thing—just hit the keys you want, and letters magically appear on a screen in front of you. The modern typewriter, for all of its analog components, isn’t much different, but old typewriters weren’t always so easy, intuitive, or standardized.

The Sholes and Glidden model, wrote capitals only, is the first for introducing the QWERTY keyboard, which is in the computer keyboard of today. The typing mechanism of the first model related to an “up-strike” design. Pressing on the key swings the type-bar up toward the platen. This means that a typist can not see what they type.

The establishment of a market for typewriters was the next great obstacle in the path of the promoters. Few businessmen believe that the introduction of typewriters in their offices is not practical. Many employers felt typing brings rude feeling to customers for lacking a personal touch. Moreover, the first typewriter was extremely difficult for anyone to type in a speedy way due to mechanical imperfections. But there were a few individuals who reasoned that people can increase the capacity of the typewriter by some new arrangement of type bar action. Thus, it would allow operators to have a full view of the actual printing. This would eliminate the great inconvenience that people have to lift the platen to see what they write.
