Creative Challenge 258: Memory

A memory I have is typing with an old, now antique Underwood typewriter that looked something like this one. One thing I do still miss is the sound these old machines made while typing. It also reminds me of "The Typewriter" by composer Leroy Anderson, which you can listen to here. For other Creative Challenge entries click here.

I miss the sound of a 35mm camera...digital doesn't make the sound of film winding LOL

This brings back memories. I remember having an old manual typewriter when I was young, too.

Great vid, too. I remember this piece of music from years gone by also.

That brings back memories I learnt on something like that. Electric typewriters were only for the director's secretaries. I remember changing those ribbons, getting ink on the fingers. One advantage, I was a fast touch typist and it helps when I write now. Interesting entry.

They were "the" technology, one of my typewriters was used quite a lot and I wore out one of the letters, forget which one now, but remember having to "retire" that machine for my electric one, and that seemed like an amazing machine at the time - until I got my first computer. Now the technology moves so fast that one's computer/cell phone/i-phone/andriod/tablet/i-pad becomes outdated almost as soon as you buy it [a bit of hyperbole here, but you get the idea].
