Description
Stenotype shorthand machine No.3. This unit comprises of a black metal box with a row of 10 split keys in the front. There are 4 more keys in front of the main row. As each key is depressed, a paper roll mounted at the back of the machine starts to roll and print. A black ribbon runs in front of the paper roll. Each time a key is depressed, a small metal printing hammer strikes the paper roll and creates a print. The unit is quite compact and portable.
