Victor Type Writer

1889
 


Manufactured by the Tilton Manufacturing Company of Boston, the Victor printed from a daisy wheel and has been credited with being the first typewriter to use this design. Character selection was performed by guiding a finger cup over the character index at the front of the machine. Inking was from an ink pad and a small hammer would force the type into the paper when a lever at the left was depressed. The Victor's gold painted decorations make it quite an attractive typewriter. .
