|3 typospherians also attended - BusterBullet of Streamlines Deluxe, |
Annalese Stradivarius of A Machine for the End of the World,
and myself :)
|There were many typers there... including 4 of Anna Strad's here: |
The Royal, The Oliver 5, Remington Noiseless, and the Standard Folding
|I brought my Corona Speedline. I must say that by my estimation, |
the most popular machines were her Oliver 5 and my Corona.
They got a lot of typing done on them by probably near a couple
dozen different people. Now we both have to clean them!
|Ermano's table (manned by his assistant Pedro) - each repairman|
brought some typers to sell
|Ruben's table - lots of kids around that were very curious about the typers|
|Jesse Flores RIP|
|The two repairmen are good friends|
|Soboroff's table usually had a well-sized crowd around. |
Here he explains how amazing his typewriters are.
Of course, he first warned this little girl: "Don't touch them!
They're worth more than you!" LOL
|He didnt get tired of retelling the same stories about how he came to|
collect famous people's typewriters ("Because they're one of a kind") or
how he got them (re: Cronkite's typer "i called up his lawyer right when
|He said he bought this forf $20k from a family friend of Hemingway's and he says its probably|
worth $200K now
|This he bought for $3500 while bradbury was still alive. He says it's probably worth |
|He said this is probably priceless/ It was Lennon's from when |
he was a child/early teenager.
|I typed on this bad boy after Soboroff volunteered my services to help him |
carry all his typers back to the car. Luckily BusterBullet helped too!
|The cover of still shows the FBI Evidence tape. felt creepy typing on the machine.|
I actually have a copy of the letter Kaczynski wrote to Soboroff.
He gave it to me as a souvenir... ill have to scan it soon.
