There were two McLoughlin Brothers typewriters produced of which the one pictured here is the second version. Both versions were originally sold as toys, though the McLoughlin brothers had hopes of selling their writing machine to cost-conscious businessmen as practical writing devices, too. The typewriters were produced in New York by McLoughlin Bros. Inc. and marketed as the "McLoughlin Bro's Ten Dollar Typewriter."
