Random Cool Stuff #4: Old Typewriters

Wandering around the internet today I learned all about the history of typewriters. I thought these pictures were really cool - first of the steampunk-ish Crandall, then of the radically utilitarian Blickensderfer (both made about 1880). Interestingly, these cost about $100 at the time - several times the value of a laptop today, when adjusted for inflation (or so my sources tell me).
