Vintage: "Clipper" Typewriter
According to the serial number, this particular late-40's Clipper was among the last of the Speedline bodies to roll off Smith-Corona's assembly line. However, as we have seen, Speedlines continued to appear sporardically well into the 1950's. The Clipper seems to have superceded the Standard name in 1945.
Note the logo, which depicts a Boeing B-314 flying boat. Although the ubiquitious Pan-Am Clippers had been retired from service in 1946, the airplane continued to-and to an extent still does-symbolize travel in style and grace.
