Linowriter - this one from 1910.

Linotype keyboard on a typewriter for practice purposes, I guess they could check the proof as well.

Came to theprintingmuseum.org.nz via a collection of 60+ typewriters donated.

Interestingly has automatic tab stops, pity the linotype never did.

Cheers - John - linotype@icloud.com

Nice pics John. Quite a comprehensive keyboard by today's standards.

Nice selection of common fractions, the commercial at sign, any idea what the four red numbered keys on the right were for?

The article suggests that the machine may have been produced nearer to 1920 than 1910.

The machine should be able to be accurately dated with the information here:
