UNDERWOOD MASTER TYPEWRITER
The Largest in the World
Operates Daily at the Underwood Elliott Fisher
Exhibit in the Business Systems Building
at the New York World's Fair
This huge machine, weighing 14 tons, is 1,728 times larger than the regular Underwood Master. It required 3 years to build. Each typebar weighs 45 pounds and the carriage alone weighs 3,500 pounds. Letters are typed on "stationery" measuring 9 by 12 feet, and the ribbon in the machine is 100 feet long and five inches wide. Two box cars were required to transport the Giant to the World's Fair.
