Our Remington Noiseless Model 7 typewriter manufactured in 03/1947

This #vintage typewriter was first made in 1931 and featured a full-sized paper table, a tabulator, black plastic keytops, and a long, horizontal carriage return lever. The original price for this portable #typewriter was $105. Remington stopped making these during WWII but revived them after the war with new features including black wrinkle paint, which is what ours has. We luckily found this at a flea market and it was in perfect working condition and just needed a new ribbon, which we happily installed.

We used this typewriter to print the artist labels for the storefront exhibition we curated and currently can be seen at the Theater for the New City Gallery on 155 First Ave at 10th street. The gallery is free and open daily from 10am to 10pm. Capturing the Lower East Side's Storefronts is on display through Sunday, October 15th!
