Sholes Typewriter (1st Visibe Model)


This appears to be the first version of the Sholes Visible typewriter so it may just have been a prototype. It was invented ca.1891 by Christopher Latham Sholes and made by the C. Latham Sholes Typewriter Mfg. Co. of Wisconsin. Note the placement of the ribbon spools under the exposed typebars.
