Using a Typewriter - Gina Ublvinutsky

This quote was added by user85997
Using a typewriter was not that easy. A typewriter (not necessarily electric) had a ribbon with usually black and red ink. A piece of paper was inserted in the machine, and the typist would have to bang on the keys so they would hit the ribbon evenly. If more than one copy was needed a piece of carbon paper was inserted in-between the pages. If a mistake was made, the original and each copy had to be erased before the document could be completed. Typists strived for accuracy!
