Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

My two small grandchildren are fascinated by my portable typewriters-one Olivetti, one Scheidegger-  both of which need a ribbon and tlc. Does anybody know of someone interested in repairing these useless but loved antiques?   Sally

Typewriters are officially not useless, being, as they are, free from the danger of hacking/wi-fi/eavesdropping - unless I've been taken in by a spoof written (on a typewriter) by Isvestia.

There are still those who repair the machines - http://www.thetypewriterman.co.uk/ , George Blackman, and Everest.

Collector's Weekly thinks typewriters are collectable and WikiHow sets out how to buy a typewriter.

I remember invoking the immortality cheat on Manic Miner by typing 'TYPEWRITER' at a certain point in the game
