Deluxe Model 5
Remington Rand Typewriter Company
Wellington Parker Kidder
Original Price: $54.50-57.75
The Remington Deluxe Model 5 was also sold under its new name, Remington Rand, and like many typewriters, seems to have been a popular item to advertise for Christmas gifts in the States. This particular typewriter was manufactured the year Japan attacked the United States, which brought the US into World War II. This is a reminder that even when the world is in war times, life does not stop. The advertisement to your left is from December 10, 1941, published on page 3 of the Intelligencer Journal in Lancaster, PA.
