Underwood - James Plant, Amsterdam

(And even after then being left somewhere in an attic for at least 50 years, this typewriter still just works - original ribbon and without any cleaning or tweaking. Amazingly durable machines :-)

The James Plant offices are shown in this photograph from the Amsterdam Municipal Archives, taken in 1963 - about the period that the little eraser-shield was given away from this address.

The names of Underwood and James Plant on the facade of the building were recently uncovered and refreshed. This re-done lettering is shown here with some background history on him and his company too.
