The typewriter is one of the great inventions of 19th Century communications technology. Between the 1860s and 1920s engineers, inventors and even carpenters invested all their creativity in the development of the ultimate writing machine. This virtual museum, that is based on private collections from around the world, is a tribute to their ingenuity. The museum was started in June 2001. It continues to grow.
