Gosh I'll say Brattcat, but I bet in their day they were the height of efficiency! Love all the lovely warm wood in this image.

My desk doesn't come close. I have typed on a typewriter of that vintage and your fingers really get quite a workout.

That's a work of art.

I think I could really write something worth while with a desk like that to work at!

What a sound it made in its time.

Wow. Yeah, my desk also looks like that one, too and I got my granddad's 1960's type writer on top. Beside my old school desk I had an ancient PC windows XP from 1999.

My desk isn't nearly so neat but then I donth have to find room for that giant typewriter.

Love this kind of rolltop desks, for its multiple shelves!

My office is far less fascinating that this wooden beauty. And I have a vile computer, not a vintage typewriter...

Hopefully we are not judged by the appearance of our work space! You (or this owner) gets an A+

There must have been a lot less paperwork in those days.

Paula said...

Ha! Never and it wouldn't even if I had that beautiful desk.

Yes, in the office; no, at home. Love both the desk and old typewriter!

I apologize for disappearing again. My husband and went on a long road trip (I didn't have time to create scheduled posts) and when we got home a week ago, we discovered that we didn't have our land line or internet connection. Despite following up everyday (sometimes twice a day) no service crew has yet come to our house. I'm in an internet cafe in a mall right now, just to feed my internet addiction a bit.
