Lilly : Were you saying you wanted to borrow a typewriter, Ronnie ?
Ronnie : Oh, it's okay - I've managed with my John Bull Printing Outfit.
Lilly : Quite a little Randolph Hearst, aren't you ?!

thats one old typewriter there Lilly

True to type you have stamped your mark on this one although in a somewhat unhinged fashion Ronnie. Your Underwood lives up to its name Lilly. It looks like that is exactly where it has been kept :0

@grouser: ha ha . . a gem Comment here, Grouser !!
Underwood? Hmm... Not Underwater instead?
9 Aug 2010 10:36am
@António Pires: yeah, does make y'think, yes ? (Ronnie)
Lilly: With this typewriter Ronnie can write old love poems for you!

Age seems to be the watermark on this picture! Nice job L&R :)

I love old typewriters. I spent Sunday at a flea market and they were everywhere!
9 Aug 2010 2:22pm
I'm also a flea-market kind of person. Yellowing, soiled paper and rusty metal are two of my favourite tones. One-stop shopping here.
9 Aug 2010 2:46pm
You two find the most amazing stuff. This great! If no one needs that typewriter . . .
9 Aug 2010 3:25pm
fabulous image .
9 Aug 2010 4:22pm
The shot of the day : I like the mood here…
9 Aug 2010 4:23pm
@Calusarus: Thank you, my friend - we are indeed flattered ! (L&R)
Love everything in it...The old rusty typewriter..in great detail
Stamps..pretty old ones ...
9 Aug 2010 5:22pm
@Sunder: Thanks, Sunder - welcome !
really like these old things,great stuff
9 Aug 2010 5:29pm
I've heard of mail arriving late, but that typewiter would fall apart if you tried
to return the carriage, let alone type anything. Maybe should try Morse code
or something more up to date.
9 Aug 2010 5:40pm
@Phil David Alexander Morris: Morse code . . ? . . ah, yes, such happy days back in the 1850's ! (Ronnie)
what a great looking old typewriter
have you written the post on it? :)
9 Aug 2010 5:44pm
@yz: ha ha . . yes, did it show ?! (Ronnie)
What a find! From your last excursion to the Titanic...?
9 Aug 2010 5:50pm
wow! where you find your thing to show!! amazin and a lovely image! and banter!!:)
9 Aug 2010 6:11pm
Super lighting, hence tones, and beyond your unique humor i can't take my eyes off this super old lady here (no, not Lilly, the type-writing machine ;) Is it yours ? Ah, love its rusty fab wig !
9 Aug 2010 6:36pm
@k@: Sadly, the old lady survives only in pictures and my John Bull Printing set is now no more . . (Ronnie)
9 Aug 2010 6:57pm
I don't have any clever puns...I love to read Grouser's.
I just have to say, again; love your creative minds and shots.
Of course, this rusty Underwood is just too gorgeous !!!
9 Aug 2010 7:28pm
@Dulcie: Thank you, Dulcie and, yes, ol'Grouser has a way with words ! (Ronnie)
Superbe objet que cette machine !...
J'aime la couleur de la rouille))
9 Aug 2010 7:40pm
@tataray: Merci ! Rouille que nous ont en abondance. (Ronnie)
Cool retro composition.
9 Aug 2010 8:59pm
Superbe image, you're a real artist !!!
9 Aug 2010 9:25pm
This could take a while. Good luck though. ;) Beautiful composition!
9 Aug 2010 9:35pm
That ol' Underwood could use a little work, I'm afraid. Wonderful image and light.
9 Aug 2010 9:37pm
Lilly is showing that she got also very old stuff, be carefull Ronnie you might have shown your treasures too fast.
10 Aug 2010 12:39am
I love the raw, grittiness of this typewriter. I'm glad Amanda has identified where all the typewriters went. :-)
It seemed like they were obliterated from this earth "en masse."
10 Aug 2010 1:14am
love love love this!
10 Aug 2010 1:47am
What is it about oldness in people and in objects that make them far more interesting than the sleek and beautiful of today. Maybe in 30 or 40 years, my Mac will be beautiful and mysterious.
10 Aug 2010 3:48am
@Susan: Yes, agreed. And the pace of change is speeding up around us !
The Underwood looks under water. Love the rusty relic vs. the old queen's postage. From a day when letters took the slow boat.
10 Aug 2010 4:37am
Wow, that's a really old typewriter. Love the details, great job!
10 Aug 2010 6:19am
A good old rusty Underwood ! Time flies ! ;-)))
10 Aug 2010 8:42am
Oh my... this is fabulous ! Looks like we've just jumped back in time ! Lovely textures and tones here...
I really like it ! Have a nice day :)
10 Aug 2010 11:56am
@Tamara: Thanks, Tamara . . you have a good day, too ! (Ronnie)
10 Aug 2010 1:13pm
goodness, the setting for the typewriter is fab
10 Aug 2010 2:06pm
A fine old Underwood with the keys jammed....typical look for one of these! :-) Nice post.
10 Aug 2010 2:34pm
Letter or earlier...
10 Aug 2010 3:19pm
10 Aug 2010 5:05pm
so nice shot here
10 Aug 2010 6:06pm
10 Aug 2010 7:14pm
you seem to have a limitless supply of antique stuff, I like ^^
11 Aug 2010 2:20am
What a collection. Very cool shot - you nailed it!
11 Aug 2010 2:17pm
a jump in the past from which the colours are very important in the atmosphere
11 Aug 2010 4:02pm
@kerfendal: Thank you, Kerfendal. Both items carried much of the coloring you see - all we did was balance them a touch. (Ronnie)
A great composition with this impressiv typewriter .
11 Aug 2010 6:46pm
@Mhelene: Thank you, yes, we reckon that typewriter is from around 1930 ! (Ronnie)
A very funny dialogue! Accompanying a delightful image! I love antiques! The typewriter is beautiful!
11 Aug 2010 7:21pm
@Fonts: Indeed a beauty : today, we seem to eliminate style for preference of faceless fashion. (Ronnie)
I like this photo
11 Aug 2010 8:16pm
Great composotion... love this old typewriter wich has sudden the assaults of time... a testimony of past to protect.
12 Aug 2010 9:04am
Great tone. Great shot.
Love the capturing of the "oldness" of both subjects!
12 Aug 2010 11:18am
Lovely juxtaposition, and the colours on both sides are lovely
12 Aug 2010 2:31pm
j'aime ce genre de vieillerie !
12 Aug 2010 3:05pm
@rem_la: Oui, c'est comme toucher le temps! (Ronnie)
I don't get the connection between the stamps and the John Bull Printing Outfit (which I googled). What am I missing?
12 Aug 2010 5:03pm
@Anita: Ahhh . . the John Bull Printing Outfit was around in the 1950's and comprised tiny rubber letters that could be placed in a wooden block and made into a 'stamp'. The heading on the album page was made using that, I reckon. (Ronnie)
That's one old typewritter. I would use a printing outfit myself. I'm sure my parents still have the one I had for XMAS nearly 40 years ago! Now you've got me thinking. I'm going up into their loft tomorrow to retrieve it!!
12 Aug 2010 7:33pm
@Philip: Sounds like a good plan - would make a great photo-subject if you have one of those old kits ! Let us know if you publish and we'd be happy to link to that rather than eBay ! (Ronnie)
This is beautiful! I love the warm tones and lighting.
13 Aug 2010 8:56am
@✿ Anina ✿: Thanks, Anina - those ancient tones were there in the images and did not need much tweaking ! (Ronnie)
I love the connection between the two images! Sending letters is a lost art, and this reminds me that I should send some!
13 Aug 2010 3:11pm
13 Aug 2010 10:59pm
Oh! Thanks for explanation. I didn't realize the set stamped stamps!
16 Aug 2010 10:46am
Ha ha... lol, John Bull indeed, wicked !.
17 Aug 2010 12:09am
Ronnie! Lilly! How did I miss this! Love it LOVE it!
17 Aug 2010 3:07pm
My girls will probably never know the 'true' meaning of a typewriter! And what a wonderful collection of stamps.... I remember as a kid spending hours looking at my uncles' stamp collection! They don't make them so beautiful anymore :(
Gorgeous tones and detail! Bravo
19 Aug 2010 5:27pm
magnifique, cette vieille machine à écrire, et la composition avec les vieux timbres est très réussie. Bravo.
21 Aug 2010 3:41pm
@Marie: Je vous remercie, Marie. Nous étions heureux avec commentaire cela recherché. (Ronnie)
A lot of memories with this one... nostalgia too... lovely warm tones and composition here... and remenber... Don't put the typewriter in the fish tank ! here is the result...
29 Aug 2010 10:02am
I used to have a typewriter just like that one but it was in much better condition. Don't know what my parents did with it.
