Pictures and info on the Remington 2 typewriter.

People love to have relicts of the past. There is a certain enjoyment that comes from knowing how things were once done and what types of machines were used to do them. Collector’s love items such as these and a good example of this kind of item are antique typewriters. That is why the Remington 2 Typewriter is such a prize.

The Remington 2 was first produced in 1885 and the type in the picture above has been dated from 1893 and 1894, making it over one hundred years old. This type of typewriter is known as an understrike, or blind typewriter. To see what one has typed, the hinged carriage must be lifted and the underside of the platen, where the typing is, can then be seen.

The Remington typewriters were some of the most successful typewriters of their time. However, around the 1900s, front-strike typewriters broke onto the market and this significantly decreased the popularity of the understrikes. These first typewriters had all but disappeared by the beginning of the first World War.
