triumph is fraktur number TWO

I should be so lucky…


my apologies, I should have used a plain paper instead of this with dots!  yes, this is my second fraktur typewriter! 🙂


triumph gabrielle 35 – plain standard plastic body and keys but what do we have here?  a set of fraktur type slugs??!!!


to be honest, it was difficult for me to type on torpedo 15a. it has the ornate fraktur letters printed on its glass keys. i cant be sure of what I was typing. this one, no such problem! however, it is still a challenge to type the standard letter ‘s’ which is on the bottom right (1st row) of the keys. the long ‘s’  is at the ‘asdf’ keys.


not sure if this is the typewriter, or type slugs serial number. do you know? I tried looking for other serial number on the typewriter’s body but found none.


I have acquired a few more typewriters after my self proclaimed going cold turkey, no more typewriters, sigh…

I am starting to think that  I  focused too much on getting THAT ONE, and more typewriters that I forgotten the reasons why I wanted them in the first place.  most of the times the typewriters are just sitting prettily in the display cabinets. I have typed less than 10 letters, procrastinated cleaning the dirty ones, few art and crafts projects and that’s about it. surely I can do better!

first thing first, I have decided to place one typewriter at my sister’s tuition center for the kids to play with (thank you Richard for the suggestion). kids should know what is a typewriter and how one looks like.
