    typewriter…

    The overall design of the Sholes Visible is driven largely by a unique and quite remarkable means for having the type bars strike the paper. The type bars are lined up in two rows within the protruding angled 'wing' above the center of the keyboard. When one pushes a key, the type bar moves slightly over to an open channel between the two type bar rows and moves up to strike the platen and then returns back to its home position. No other typewriter has anything that operates like this.
