Not much you can do with a bland name like "Williams" I suppose, and "Miss Williams" certainly doesn't help sell the brand! A far cry from the sexy German ads by Olympia, Adler and Continental etc. :)
The European brands certainly were a bit more flamboyant with it all, that's for sure. Save for British machines, they were just as bland as ever.
Excellent work, thank you!
Now: how and where did you dig?
I just googled for Williams Typewriter, adding a plethora of other sub-words that helps google find what I want, while searching under "Books" so that it pulls up the old stuff rather than new sites and blogs and what not. I've found that one of the most helpful sub-words is "audit", as it pulls up government auditing records that often include dates of acquisition and serial numbers, alongside costs.
Interesting, thank you!
Great group of ads.
Hello, I would like to contact you by mail on the topic of the Williams age research you did for the TWDB. Thanks for stating the address, or contact me via typewriters.ch. Thanks again!
