One of my typewriters that I wrote about a few months ago.
The famous typewriter nook at Shakespeare and Co in Paris.
This engineering feat is located in front of a bookstore in Berlin. Those old typewriters are really heavy to be perched atop a pile of wobbly books. Maybe the entire structure is secured with hidden dowels driven into the ground. Like I said, an engineering feat. Elmine Wijnia
