I didn’t collect  typewriters then and I was quite happy with the one I had since I was fourteen.

The machine was purchased at a charity car boot sale on a miserable cold wet day and I felt I had to buy something from them. It had a £4 label but the stall-holder said call it £3. I said done and she said you probably have been! She said it had been bought on impulse and never really used.
