Changing the ribbons was always a fun, neat experience. No such thing as a cartridge, just a nice clean ink soaked tape. I had 2 old Underwoods that also just about took a hammer to get the letters dark enough when the ribbon started getting old. I guess that part didn't really matter though, as they were so heavy you ended up looking like the Incredible Hulk if you had to tote them around much. I do however sort of wish I still had 1 as a conversation piece if nothing else. They would probably be like old 78 records and a turntable for kids to be amazed at.

even later when there was it was too messy and
everything had to be typed.

But I'm not so old that I had to type in the cold,
Bob. We always had heat--grin.
