Relic



This classic IBM Selectric was found sitting alone in the Asheville Public Library.

Limit one hour.

The microfilm reader behind it looks to be lonely as well, but probably gets a little more attention.

These two orphans of technology, what could they be thinking?

Dreaming of the glory days, when they were in constant demand?

When research was WORK, and you'd better get it right the first time, Jack!

Or just waiting, dreamless.

Waiting to serve, selflessly.

What can it be thinking?

What indeed...

I hate to ask, but I'm thinking this isn't a joke? It's not that I can't see the use for a typewriter...but does it really have an hour limit? Awww, I think you're joshing about that.
