Oliver No. 3

I chose to submit my pencil drawing of the Oliver No. 3 typewriter because the invention of the typewriter had such a drastic and lasting impact through the decades of the 20th century. It's invention was integral to the industrial revolution as well as the means for women to enter the the professional world for the first time through clerical work. Not only was it's importance so great in the industrial revolution, but also in operations and logistics of the first and second world war. This one piece of machinery not only changed the decade it was invented in, but had developing and lasting effect through each decade.
