Advertisement for Smith Typewriters

[Advertising Illustration]

This advertisement appeared on a cover from the L. C. Smith company, an early manufacturer of typewriters. Note that the image shows the typewriter breaking both the pen and the sword! When I was in school in the late 1950's and early 1960's, I learned to type on such a monster. Take it from me, the Smith typewriter is very heavy! The cover dates from about 1900.
