    That's one pretty deco machine, right there. If I could find a Woodstock over here, I would snap it up in an instant. Always hearing about what good machines they are.

    Congratulations on the beautiful Woodstock. I wonder if they ever made a Mill.

    What a fun machine, and at such a reasonable price. Great find and great post, Richard!

    This machine seems like it found its proper owner!

    Your Woodstock reminds me a bit of my Remington Model Seventeen, made in 1941. The Woodstock has a few more interesting artistic touches, such as the side panels. They're great!

    Funny that the company didn't last and yet was the main producer of typewriters during the war. You'd think they would have gained a huge advantage over the competition, much like Harley Davidson did.

    So THAT'S what Bloch is typing on there! But what's holding the paper so dramatically upright? Were Bloch's stories scary enough to stiffen paper?

    This is my favorite author photo, and was actually the profile picture for my old Facebook account before I saw this post.

    It is an amazing photo, isn't it? I like the jug of moonshine, too. Probably the whole thing was staged.
