Colored Typewriters

Companies have been experimenting and manufacturing various shades of colored typewriters from the early beginnings of this industry. We often think in terms of black and white when imagining people, places or things from the olden days, but life was far from that!

Realizing that most office secretaries and typists where staffed with women, the idea of breaking out of the traditional boring “black & white” look was and idea that many typewriter companies took action on by offering colored typewriter housings, or bodies, in order to appeal to a more “at home” decor in the office.
