Davis Bros. LIVE - One Night Only - Friday Sept. 22 in Ohio!

This coming Friday, September 22, there will be a special one night only showing of Doug Nichols' new film documentary "California Typewriter" at Cleveland's Cedar Lee Theatre.

Following the showing (which starts at 7:15 PM) both of us, and Richard Polt (who is actually in the movie) will take part in a question and answer session at the venue.  This is your chance to get a look at the new movie in its full release phase, AND get to meet and talk to Richard and to both of us.

I'm going to tell you all that we do precious few live typewriter related appearances.  We restrict most of what we do in a public way to our blogs, and our YouTube channel.  However as many of you know we are constantly active in the online typewriter communities - especially Facebook's "Antique Typewriter Collectors" group - we simply just don't regularly go out and about talking typewriters.  So, this is a unique chance to get to see us live at some time other than Herman Price's annual typewriter-related shindig / brouhaha.  That's a wonderful affair but you can't really call it "public," since few of the general public ever would come and deal with a bunch of serious typewriter nuts for several days.

If you're in northern Ohio, or are near there consider coming out!  We'll be happy to see you.

Cedar Lee Theatre, Friday September 22 at 7:15 PM for the movie with Q&A afterward.  Address is 2163 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights. Ohio.

"On the Margin" - a New Effort, and a New Blog!


I'm happy to announce that I've launched a project that has been in the works in one form or another for years.  This is an effort to really explain and show the rebuilt typewriter business as has never been done before.  This significant part of the typewriter universe "in the old days" is ignored almost wholly by the collector books that have been published, and except for my personal efforts on the net over all these years (on my own site, and later on this blog) has really been ignored on the net as well.

The amount of original information I've compiled on the business might astound you.  I've launched a brand new, stand alone blog done in a new style for me in order to bring this to you.  It will take a long time, but hopefully you'll enjoy it.

And don't be put off by the 'rebuilt' theme -- you'll see plenty of wonderful, classic typewriters, many really old and wonderful photos and a horde of ephemera and paperwork.  You will not be disappointed if you really love old typewriters.

Here is the blog - and I hope you enjoy it.  It's still very new so if you follow it now you'll really be on the ground floor.
