Friendship is the medicine of life

This Oliver Four Bank is a cherished part of my collection*.

The note explains a little bit more of the story... and my sorry excuse for not blogging.

Incidentally, in the intervening time between posts I completely forgot how to use my scanner and had to relearn.  It seems you can teach an old dog new tricks after all, even if you have re-teach him after a few months.

*I'm sorry that it isn't the clearest photo.


  1. Interesting typewriter -- I don't think I've seen one before, although I've seen photos of some later Oliver frontstrokes. In the US, of course, the name Oliver is found only on the traditional downstroke, 3-bank design.

  2. Welcome back. Awesome looking typewriter!
