Typewriter Co. Maine, USA. This early, simple index machine, uses a swinging pointer to select the characters. At the other end of the pointer is a semi-circular type element with a rubber strip attached, this strip has all of the characters molded onto it's surface. By pushing down on the metal bar, just above the nickel plated "comb", a metal plunger pushes the pliable rubber character down towards the paper. Inking was by two ink pads. An ink dropper would be used to apply more ink as required. This typewriter originally sold for $8.00.

A.E.G., Berlin, Germany. Despite its unusual appearance, the Mignon typewriter is of a very clever design for an index typewriter, giving a smooth and fast operation for typing. With thumb and forefinger, one pinches the black tab on the pendulum. The pendulum swings freely over the index plate and is moved to point at the desired character. Then the black button at the front of the machine (one is for spacing) is pushed, causing the type cylinder to come down onto the platen. The index plate and the type cylinder could be changed, allowing for different languages and fonts. The Mignon was popular for three decades and was still produced into the early thirties.

Mossberg & Granville Manufacturing Co., Providence, R.I. USA. The Granville Automatic is quite a unique typing machine. It gets a part of its name from the ability of the operator to control the basic typewriter functions, all from the keyboard. The two upper, large nickel-plated keys return the carriage. The lower large keys are for shifting to upper case. There is also a key for carriage release and one to advance the roller! The Granville Automatic, despite its innovative design, failed in the marketplace and today is rare.
