    Even today you'll find a man with a typewriter set up outside some government building, and people pay them for their quick work.

    It was indeed compulsory practice to go for a type writing course (along with short hand writing), I too did back in 90's. It helped me a lot when I went for my first interview as a data processor, I cracked a speed of 72 wpm in a windows machine!

    We should be proud of these machines. It was part of our life. I was preferred for employment due to my typing knowledge.
