Remington No.5 Streamline Portable (c.1935)
Classic example of Streamline Style, a benchmark in American history! Circa 1935 was a time of uncertainty for many, but Streamline Style emerged as a hopeful gesture toward a gleaming future. The Remington Streamline typewriter exemplifies the values identified with modernity: mobility, speed, efficiency, luxury and hygiene. The sharp corners and transitions here are rounded off with everything given a sort of aerodynamic feel. Along with high style points, this model scores high on innovation: an exclusive feature of the Streamline model is the red Self Starter key, that indents paragraphs uniformly without bother of counting. Nice and quick: tap once for five spaces, twice for ten!
