Adventure Typewriter Search Results! (part 1)
The Adler cleaned up surprisingly well! In fact, it looks like not only did I clean off the gunk, but some of the scuffing went away too. I didn't expect that. All I did was scrub the plastic with an electric toothbrush--first with goo gone, then with dish soap. It did wonders.
But for once you finally see typewriters as I found them. Almost no cleaning has been done for these makeshift photos, aside from the Adler. I didn't have any time to clean them up before the sun completely set, and then I'd just have to wait until the next day to take photos. I'll show the cleaned up typewriters in much better photos when the time comes.
I photographed the typecasts once more instead of scanning them. Out of laziness, I guess. I didn't want to get the scanner out. XD I think the scanner does do a better job in these low-light conditions...
Sent from my new typewriters: Hermes 2000, Adler J5, Smith-Corona Galaxie Twelve, and Smith-Corona Skyriter.
