This old magazine advertisement features a Hammond No. 2 Typewriter. The ad claims that the Hammond No. 2 writes in a straight line with uniform type impression, doing automatically what an experienced operator cannot accomplish on other machines. It offers the choice of 42 type styles and writes 14 languages with changes from one type or language to another occupying only a few seconds. Here is a black and white clip art version of the typewriter from the ad. The advertisement is from the Christmas 1896 issue of Harper’s New Monthly magazine. Click on images to enlarge.
