The Fitch Typewriter

The Fitch typewriter was just one of four brands that was developed with a rear, downstrike typebar arrangement. That simply means that the type elements struck the platen from the top-rear whereas most modern typewriters strike from the front. Though the design was a commercial failure, there were nonetheless two similar Fitch models produced. The earlier model, the American Fitch, was first made by The Fitch Typewriter Company of Des Moines, Iowa and then by the Brady Manufacturing Company of Brooklyn, New York. The latter, the British Fitch, was produced in London, England, U.K by the Fitch Typewriter Company, Limited.
