Caption

Early typewriter. Historical engraving of the Remington writing machine, the forerunner of the modern typewriter. This typewriter was devised by Christopher Latham Sholes with Carlos Glidden and Samuel Soule in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, in 1867. Their "literary piano" was bought by gunsmiths Remington and Sons of Ilion, New York, USA, and marketed from 1874 under the name 'Remington Model 1'. The keys were laid out in such a way as to minimise keys next to one another being struck in succession. The layout helped stop early typewriters from jamming. A similar layout, the QWERTY layout, is still in use today.
