Time goes by but we never forget our first typewriter. Do you still keep your typewriter as a remembrance? O tempo passa mas a gente nunca esquece a primeira máquina de escrever. Você ainda guarda a sua como lembrança?

Writers at their typewriters. Escritores e suas máquinas de escrever. (Via Here and Here)

Dorothy Parker ... Ernest Hemingway

Francoise Sagan ... George Bernard Shaw

Sylvia Plath ... Patricia Highsmith

Tennessee Williams ... William Faulkner

Brazilian Writers. Escritores Brasileiros.

Carlos Drummond de Andrade...Clarice Lispector

Erico Verissimo...Jorge Amado

Lygia Fagundes Telles...Manuel Bandeira

Nelson Rodrigues...Osman Lins

Enjoy Jerry Lewis video at the Typewriter. Scene of the film "Who's Minding the Store?", 1963. Divirta-se com o vídeo de Jerry Lewis e a máquina de escrever. Cena do filme intitulado em português "Errado Pra Cachorro", 1963.

  • The old typewriter of my friends. As velhas máquinas de escrever de minhas amigas.

    What a great and enjoyable post.
    Thank you!!
    Take a look at my blog. Still have my old typewriter. Picture can be viewed on the right side!
    - Cheers Gisela.

  3. Love this post!

    I have an old typewriter, but not my first one. I wish I did.


  4. Great memories, right?
    My mom learned to type in one of those old big and black typrewriters!
    Happy Wednesday!
    Kisses and hugs

  5. What a great post - one of your best!
    I love everything about it.
    Snoopy's dark and stormy night.
    When I was little and stayed at my grandmother's, in the bottom drawer in the room where my mum and aunt used to sleep, there were piles of old Peanuts books from when they were kids - I used to love to read them.
    And also when I was little, Jerry Lewis movies on the tv on a Saturday afternoon were my favourite - and I will always remember the typewriter scene - it's brilliant.

    I love your very own typewriter and I love all the photos of the writers with their typewriters.
    I especially love GBS's short pants.

    Just wonderful!

    I think I must have been one of the last classes at school to learn how to use the typewriter because when I was about 15 computers took over. I'm sooooo glad I learned how to touch-type, it's made using a keyboard so much easier. When I worked in an office with people a little younger than myself - they all used the two finger typing method.

  6. What a wonderful post!
    I was fascinated.
    I always had a portable typewriter but what happened to them I don't know!
    How much better a computer is!

    When you messed up on a typewriter, you had to re-do the whole page.
    Greetings from me and Buster.

  7. Sonia,

    ontem passei aqui e deixei um comentário que não foi postado! Procure nos seus e-mails! Dizia mais ou menos o seguinte: se eu estivesse em SP, te mandaria uma foto da máquina que herdei da minha mãe!

    Bjs e mais uma vez, parabéns pelo post!

  8. Que interessante postagem, SÓNIA !

    Gostei muito, de verdade.

    Um beijo.

  9. What a delightful post!

    I'm afraid I AM old enough to remember typewriters. I had several over the years from uni days right up to the mid-80s. Then of course, Apple took over.

    I can't say I miss the blanko, twisted typewriter ribbons, getting ink on my fingers and the horror of editing! What editing?! That is one thing I really REALLY appreciate about the compuater :)

    Obrigada as lembrancas! Tenha um boa fim de semana, Sonia xox

  10. Love Snoopy!! No, I no longer have a typewriter. The computer has made them almost obsolete now!

    I loved your previous post with the old houses! Great photos Sonia!!!

  11. Oi Sonia
    Deveria ter guardado , é de fato uma relíquia. Os espaços exíguos que tenho vivido me fazem desfazer de peças assim , sentimentais! rs
    Excelente publicação Sonia, muito boa.
    Gostei muito também dos casarões antigos e da quaresmeira co seu jardim.Lindíssimos!
    Gosto desse layout seu, até tentei quando voce me ensinou achar ,mas nao consegui.Tenho algumas fotos que gostaria de guardá-las assim, em tamanho maior.Apesar de fotógrafa amadora e com uma máquina "ainda" bem ruinzinha rs fico sempre fascinada por paisagens , cidades , o cotidiano imobilizado por
    abraços Sonia
    bom fim de semana
    com chuvinha e frio ...

  12. I have nothing to add -- this is a fabulous post. I'm bookmarking it, might be a cure for writer's block.

  13. Thak you, Sonia, for this very interesting and informative post about the typewriter with so beautiful images, and you've chosen a perfect video too!
    Happy weekend :-)

  14. What a great piece Sonia!!I have moved about and lost the 3 typewriters that were very meaningful to me. One was an old green one with metal rounded keys. My Mom used it in business. She told me that typewriter made a bunch of money for her. I had 2--a portable one for college and a Selectric II. I loved my beige selectric and it was a companion along with "white-out and lift off tape" for years!!Snoopy and his typewriter is a wonderful banner. Have a great weekend. Sunny and nice here today!!!

  15. What a wonderful idea Sonia. It brings back lots of memory's...Over the years, I have had two or three typewriters---I still have my last one. I wrote all my plays on it and many many long letters, too...! It was electric and I remember thinking how fantastic it was, at the time......(lol)....But, of course, it was really fantastic, until the computer came along.
    I remember all the Carbon Paper I used to use....Oh My, that seems a long time ago....! But I have great fondness for those trpewriter's and great memories of them, too....Great Post, my dear.

  16. I'm old enough that I've used a typewriter - in fact I learned to type on one. That skill has served me well in my computer career.

  17. Sadly, I do not remember my old typewriter fondly. I am NOT a good typist. I much prefer my computer...with spell check. :)

  18. Sonia - thought you might find this interesting:

  19. By the way, what a treat to see Jorge Amado. Brilliant, funny, profound writer.

  20. Hola Sonia, siempre es un placer pasar por tu sitio, magnifico material que nos presentas y sumamente interesante. El video pinta a Jerry Lewis en toda su genialidad y su pasion por la musica. Gracias por compartirlo! Un abrazo.

  21. nao tenho a minha máquina de escrever comigo, mas eu lembro que a minha era pequena e...verde

    Nao lembrava mais do filma do Jerry
    muito bom
    belo post

  22. A marvelous post. I loved each photo. I do still have my old typewriter which I wrote my senior thesis in college on...before the computer came along the next year.

  23. I've never owned a typewriter, but I did type on quite a few when I worked in the offices of employers. Keyboards now have a much nicer feel to them.


  24. Oh, I missed this posting! Love it..I can just feel the concave buttons. my family did not keep the typewriter...sadly. I think I'm on the edge of the timeperiod where I actually remember 'typewriting' in high school...more correctly-keyboarding. My children did not experience this and have never typewrited! kind of sad
    another great post :)
