As a writer as well, I am natural drawn to typewriters, both aesthetically and the purpose for which they serve - to sway with words.
when I saw these on Flickr they really made me smile. I love that you now have a collection. See that one on the bottom in this last photo? I had one like that but mine was nearly the exact colour of your aqua one. I've always deeply regretted selling it. I needed the money at the time but should really have thought it through more carefully. So pleased you are soon to be 'typing' again.
