Typewriter shops of America: Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia

by | Jan 17, 2014 | typewriter shops | 6 comments

We continue our Google-enabled virtual tour of America’s remaining typewriter repair shops.
For more details on these shops, and on others that I’m not showing here (I couldn’t find them on Google Maps, or the owners work from home) see the list of typewriter repair shops on The Classic Typewriter Page.
Colorado


Connecticut


Delaware


Florida

The photo below is obsolete—Mr. Lust now works from home—but I had to include the image since this shop has such character. Mr. Lust was the last holdout against a redevelopment project. Read the story here.

    You know, the massed ranks of images of US typewriter repair shops would make a great poster (copyright issues notwithstanding).

    ..come to think of it, forget the copyright issues. I doubt Google asked permission to copy people's signage in the first case. They would make a lovely poster.

    Google claims copyright on every single image on Street View. The irony!

    I know but that feels wrong. Is intellectual property theft, just like the other sort?

    OK, another idea. Maybe write to them all, asking for a shopfront photo…

    There would be no copyright problems then, but of course the quality of the photo would vary. My dream is to tour around America visiting these places, interviewing the owners, and taking lots of pictures. Just a dream. Maybe some other typospherian(s) can do it.
