Some time ago I acquired a battered old Underwood typewriter intending to disassemble it for parts to add to my steampunk creations.
After knocking off a lot of "dust" and generally tidying it up a bit , it looked as if it could be made to work. Lots of patient fiddling, cleaning, application of oil and a new ribbon later, I had a working typewriter.
Now, I am a fan of Archy and Mehitabel, and there was just one thing missing, and this weekend a cockroach turned up and started to try out the Underwood.
I'll commission him to make all my exhibition labels.
