I heard a sound on assignment the other day I have not heard in years. The honest-to-god sounds of typewriter keys striking paper. It has been a longtime since I have seen someone on a typewriter, what I hear mostly is the soft clicks of a computer keyboard against the hum of a computer fan.
I was on assignment against today at the Tracy Historical Museum and tucked away downstairs are the relics of an era gone by. The collection of typewriters is amazing and a far cry from the techno-sterile-word-processing computers of today.
