One of the books I recently edited, for Bookshare, had to define a Typewriter in the glossary, sigh. It was published in 2005. Shelley L.

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.
