Here I have a Smith-Corona Skyriter from 1954.
It’s not the sexiest typewriter from that era, but it functions well. I have another that needs some draw band repair, happily this one is fully functional.
I’ll probably get around to replacing the ribbon when I organize my first type-in later this year. Folks in Erie deserve to experience the wonder of typewriters too, they just may not know it yet. ~TH~
