Remington Typewriter Co. Poster
The Remington No. 2 Type Writer was introduced in 1878, the first typewriter to type both upper & 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 Sholes & Glidden Type Writer, which typed capitals only. 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.
