1950/60s Cutting Edge Modern Business Machines for Writing, Duplicating, and Recording

This video shows the latest cutting edge technology when we were attending ACS and living in Saigon.

Watch this video – than look at your computer you are viewing it on and think for a moment about *everything* your computer, your cell phone, iPod, etc. are capable of doing.

WOW!!

Amazing the advances that have been made since we were teenie boppers in Saigon.

As they say, “We’ve come a long way, baby!”


This is an intriguing historical film, demonstrating many expensive business machines found in modern offices of the era, including electromatic and Chinese typewriters and machines for filming, stenciling, folding and lithographing. Among the machines shown are Diebold’s Flofilm microfiche recorder, the Fileomatic Desk, the Pierce Electronic Wire Recorder, the Soundscriber with plastic disk, the Elliott Stencil Machine with Graphotype machine, the Davidson Duplicator for litho printing, the Davidson Folder for letters, the Varityper, the Autotypist Perforator, the IBM Chinese character typewriter, and speed typist Stella Pajunas, using an IBM Model A Electric Typewriter, who set a one-hour typing speed record of 140 net five-stroke words per minute.

It is really hard to imagine all the technological advances we’ve witnessed in our short lives. It blows my mind every time I stop and think about it for a few minutes.

How did we ever survive without computers and the Internet!?! Or, cell phones. Or, smart phones, Or, Or, Or ….
