A Good Sign: Typewriters Adding Machines



Typewriters. Adding Machines. Adding Machines! Sold! Rented! Repaired! Rebuilt!!

But don't look for any of that here. You see from the windows that this is a location for Papa John's wretched prefabricate pizza. Somebody ought to rebuild those pizzas.

On Grand near Leonard in Williamsburg.

Mercy. They should put it in a museum if they're not going to use use it. Thirty-threes have come back in style so perhaps there's still hope, although I don't see the public demanding the reissue of 45s and 78s.
