Looks like you guys had a ball. As for the Kolibri love, there's a few photos on my blog that may look familiar. http://filthyplaten.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/the-lives-of-kolibris-subtitles.html
Yes Scott, I read your post back in August. I'm still jealous and I still want a burgundy QWERTY Kolibri with black keys... :)
Looks like wonderful fun. Now I have Harrods fever! I want to add a green Torpedo Harrods to my black MP1 Harrods. Nick, let me know if you get a spare ...
Wait 'till you see it "Nicked" (a term I devised for a painstakingly cleaned and polished and meticulously photographed typewriter - see the capital "N" in honour of our young friend ;) and to distinguish it from the common meaning) - you will start jumping up and down...
Added your report to type-in.org (:
Awesome post and pics! Makes me want to have a beer. Typewriters continue to be chickmagnets!
Nice report on the type-in. If you ever want to get a never-ending discussion on pronunciations mention Hermes. Here in the states I've heard it pronounced about 3 or 4 different ways. Glad everyone had a good time.
Thank you. Hermes was also mentioned - though we managed to keep it under an hour ;)
And don't forget the old Let-air-a debate! Great to meet you and the others and thanks so much for snapping me with an adoring fan.
I would be inclined to do some more research on that Le-tra subject by taking one of them to consult the matter with your fan :)
Great way to chat up a bar maid! Nice work guys!
Nice report! Certainly looks like a nice afternoon!
