Thanks for illustrating my fantasy!These really are radically different typewriters. A fine illustration of the diversity in our favorite kingdom of machines.
Thank you for the fine review. I do know if I had a Groma Gromina it would be one of my travel machines. I can't imagine taking my Studio 44 anyplace but around my house.I love the contrast of the 2 machines side by side.
that's quite a case - is that an earlier 44?
Its serial number places the machine in the "dark territory" between 1957 and 1964 - middle of the production period anyway. Maybe the perspective exaggerates a bit the size of the case.
It's more the pretty red covering on the case. Mine have all been plain yellowish material.
Funnily enough all the Studio 44s I saw (not that I saw too many of them ;) ) were in these red cases.
