Giant Typewriter Weighs 14 Tons (Dec, 1930)
Giant Typewriter Weighs 14 Tons
A MAMMOTH typewriterâ€”an exact duplicate of the smaller machineâ€”standing eighteen feet high and weighing fourteen tons was recently placed on display in Atlantic City’s auditorium convention hall. The huge machine, shown in the photo below, is said to have cost $100,000 and required three years’ time in construction. All parts of the huge machine work just as in an office-size typewriter.
