This blue postcard was sent by Bryon (the USA). It is a Lettera 32 portable typewriter, by Olivetti (1963). I was very happy to receive it. I learned to type with to machines: a my father's Lettera 42 and a smaller portable Lettera 12. So I guess this is something in between...
The sender wrote that he is glad we don't use those any more. Well, I recognise that they are not exactly practical. But I sort of miss the typewriters I left (obviously) in Spain.
And I confess that I have been playing with this one that someone lend me.
Or should I say that it has been playing with me?
