Remington Portable Typewriter Poster
The Remington No. 2 Type Writer was introduced in 1878, the first typewriter to type both upper and lower case. This was part of second-generation of typewriter products produced by Remington. This famous gun company founded the world typewriter industry in 1874 with the Shole Glidden Type Writer, which typed capitals. All Remingtons prior to the No. 10 typewriter are up-strike machines. Type-bars swing up to the platen, which has to be raised to see the work.
