The New Simplex No.8 Typewriter
The New Simplex No.8 Typewriter was produced by the Simplex Typewriter Co. of New York. It, like most of the other writing machines the company produced, was just a toy despite being a bit more robust than the company's other offerings. Inventors William J. Thompson and Philip Becker were award patent no. 696,304 for this No.8 model in 1902. At the time, it was also marketed as the "Improved Simplex Typewriter" but, name aside, it's the same machine.
