Six Word Saturday: The Meteor typewriter of Wspólna Street

From my visit to the Warsaw Uprising Museum. According to the museum information, this typewriter was used by printers in a workshop on Wspólna Street.

  1. What a beauty!! This is such a smashing photo, Sue.
    Hope you are fine and doing well,
    have a great weekend,
    Dina & co

    • Sue

      Thanks, Dina…taken handheld in low light with no flash, then given a bit of extra law-key treatment…..glad you like!, I’m fine thanks, and wish you all a happy weekend!

  2. Love these old typewriters 🙂

  3. It’s hard to imagine using one of these now, how times have changed. I did learn to type on one of those old black Remington’s, it hurt so much!

  4. Love the dark mysterious mood of this shot, Sue. Clandestine communiques typed thereon perhaps.

  5. I love old typewriters. If I had more space, I would collect them. Nothing beats the feel of sliding back the carriage after hearing the ‘ding’.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. So if you lived on that street, how many times do you think you’d be asked to spell it? LOL. Great shot Sue

  7. What a wonderfully preserved piece of history. Great photo, Sue.

  8. And still more Warsaw! This is an astonishing shot given the conditions. I wonder if it was used to type daily bulletins that circulated in the cellars where people had taken refuge, so thy’d know the bigger picture of the Uprising. News was rarely good: another street lost, another building bombed.

    • Sue

      Apparently, during the Occupation, the Germans closed down Polish publishing houses, and in response, Underground publishing commenced…. You’ve been to the Uprising museum?

      • Yes. But not since 2012. It’s time I went back. What I said came from the Memoir of the Uprising I’m still reading. They also closed down schools and universities, which went underground as well.

      • Sue

        Oh, OK…time you returned, Meg…. In the book I have from the museum, it says that the underground publications drew attention to German atrocities, and also successes of the allied forces elsewhere

  9. What a beautiful authentic capture, Sue!
