This classic commercial for the Remington Rand Office-Riter Typewriter aired in 1958 and states “If you’re a student, a mother active in club work, a man who brings work home from the office…this was made for you”. The announcer states the many features of this model including a king size carriage wide enough to handle a sheet of school notebook paper lengthwise. It also types up to ten carbons “so even the last copy is easy to read”. The price for this typewriter was $149.50 (carrying case at slight additional cost).
