As many of you may know I've taken
a liking to "old stuff" over the last few months. The amount of books
and antiques I collect and own makes me an Antiquarian. Anyway I've had a
list of things that I thought would be cool to find. Three things on
that list was an old camera, a old telephone, and a typewriter. An old
camera because I love photography, an old phone because I love playing
with the buttons (its not all serious people), and a type writer because
I'm obsessed with them. The noise they make, the way they look, and
(because I'm a writer) what they helped people do.
My Grandparents came up three weeks ago and actually bout these things for me!!!
They got them as gifts for my good grades first bringing out the
camera; followed by the telephone. I was already hyped about the Brownie camera,
from '46, and the old telephone from the '30s (they're really heavy by
the way); so when they surprised me with a Remington Rand, 1934,
noiseless, typewriter that I've been obsessing over 4 months now I
almost lost my mind.
