I met up with a friend for breakfast at Byways Cafe and enjoyed reading this cocktail list, as well as the explanation of the method of getting the cocktail list together.
As someone who once had the job of manually typing checks (with NO mistakes, because there were carbons involved) I feel for them. It probably took them a very long time. While it’s fun to type on typewriters, manual keyboard are so much faster. And they have both a backspace AND a delete key.
In fun typewriting observations, I’m willing to bet that this particular model doesn’t have a key with the number one on it. You can tell, because they typed the year as: i954. I once had such a typewriter. When I pointed this lack of digit out to my mom, she said they all used to be like that, and they always just used the lowercase letter “l”.
