An exhibit? I like the warmer feel of v1, Nezih. Brings back memories of typing reports with carbon paper and 'one-finger' typing SmileSmile

Meant to be exhibited, but decided not to for some reason and discarded once again. I found it nailed to a block of old wood in the scrapyard of the sculpture department. Thank you, Dave.

What a find, Nezih! Good title description of this old machine that has lost it's 'skin'.
And an interesting keyboard, so different from my own 'QWERTY.

Shame its not used as an exhibit. If you invert it, could be the typists face, complete with curly hair. One for your modern art dept Nezih.

A touch of artistry nailing the old machine to the textured wood.
Good to see the inner workings too.
Going for the colour version today.

It's rather like a work of art which wouldn't look out of place in Tate Modern.

Just hanging around showing what used to be. And to think some of these cost a fortune. Great shot.

I bet there are some youngsters going about Nezih
who do not have a clue what this is !!
Good shot.

This is fascinating--- I like the mono--and am fascinated by the keyboard-- made me realize-of course- it had to be different!
Thanks for that as well!

I wonder if any elegant prose was typed on this old machine?
Who knows it might have been a poet, an author or a reporter from across the world.
The keyboard is no ordinary qwerty layout but that could have been a child and the numbers are foreign to me.

Colour for me of course, a fascinating bit of derelict machinery very well captured.

A fascinating shot, Nezih. I prefer V1 -- which is a bit unusual for me because often I tend towards the monochrome for artifacts like this.
Nicely captured -- and, as Jenn mentioned, interesting to see that it is not a "QWERTY" keyboard.
