Factories and showrooms
Facit: Åtvidaberg, 1957
British Olivetti: Glasgow, 1957
A bit mesmerizing...
Robotron: Dresden, 1987
Smiles all 'round.
Robotron: Dresden, 1988-89
Here at the Robotron factory you can see an Olympia Regina De Luxe alongside more standard Erikas (and possibly other brands).
Showrooms (and similar)
In this case I don't think the typewriter is the main focus...
Olivetti: Switzerland, 1960s
Olivetti showrooms—not to be outdone by the typewriters' style!
Optima: DDR, 1950s
So many different Optimas on display!
Royal, Smith-Corona, Underwood: USA, 1960s
A shop that displays many kinds of used items, with typewriters as a centerpiece.
Royal: USA, 1960s
Adler: England, 1960s
The suspended-in-air display is quite delightful.
Rheinmetall: Rio de Janeiro, 1930s
Probably taken through a shop window?
In case if you haven't seen before, I created this map of known typewriter factories around the world.
