On Typewriter Tuesday, a few of the postcards depicting a mainstay of the Underwood Typewriter Company’s marketing: The giant typewriter. These postcards date from 1915 to 1939. You can learn more about the images by clicking on them.

Also visible on two of the above postcards is Underwood’s slogan: “The machine you will eventually buy”. You have to appreciate the fatalism.
