Godrej Prima

The company that makes this brand of typewriters (Godrej, based in India) stopped manufacturing typewriters in 2011. The typewriter has long departed the western hemisphere. In India and Asia, typewriters were used by lawyers and independent authors, who were still propping up this mechanical device. So what that basically means is, not only the Godrej platform of typewriters is gone, but this entire product itself, barring any unsold inventory.

I used a mechanical typewriter to type up Loan Applications and such when I first started working at a Bank, Ayush.

Gone the same way as twin lens reflex cameras!
Typewriters are rare to see. I still have an old telex machine (with typewriter)in the attic somewhere.
A fine way to present the end of an era Ayush!
My Maureen spent most of her working life using typewriters and was qualified with all that was needed to use them back in the 60's.
Fine image of this now defunct piece of equipment, Ayush.
I love typewriters--I wish some existed outside museums...
sad...., and very fine shot Ayush!
