Sorry for posting this set of states out of alphabetical order (if anyone noticed).

Illinois

This Chicago shop was about to go out of business in 2012, but here it is for history’s sake.
(Update: Wagner is not out of business, they just moved to the suburbs. Visit them in Burr Ridge, IL.)


Indiana


Kansas


Kentucky


Maine


Maryland

Massachusetts

Here is Bob Green’s shop in Amherst, which was saved from closing by many supporters, including readers of this blog:

Here’s our friend Tom Furrier’s shop:

Open or closed?

    It is interesting to peruse the range of architectural styles within which these shops find homes. Those in Massachusetts are generally the most lovely, to me. The one on 1st Street North in Wichita perhaps one of the least, at least in comparison to the wondrous castellated architecture the Wichita Scottish Rite Center nearby. But, hey, the owner appears to be a biker typer! Thanks again for the engaging tour.

    EBS in Kansas caught my eye. I'm pretty sure I have some of their ribbons on my machines here at home.

    In Massachusetts, Gill Typewriter closed about eight years ago and Hunters Typewriter just closed a few months ago. Always a bummer to see a shop close. I don't think I can single out one shop as a favorite. More like ten or so!
