Typewriter "Torpedo 18a"

The history of writing is inextricably linked to the history of type. Writing is an elementary cultural technique used to explain the world, and letterpress was the first mechanical process of writing. The typewriter expanded this function from the 19th century. With the advancement of technology, typewriter typewriters with immediately visible writing developed, one of which is the Torpedo 18a. It was built in the “Torpedo-Werke” in Frankfurt am Main in the 1940s.
