The first commercially successful typewriter was designed by Christopher Sholes and Carlos Glidden and by gunmakers E. Remington and Sons in 1874 in Ilion, New York. The company became the Remington Typewriter Company in 1902, before merging with the Rand Kardex Company in 1927 to become Remington Rand. Remington Typewriters were the first to use the QWERTY keyboard layout
This is thought to be a Remington Rand Model Standard No. 17 typewriter produced in the mid 1940’s.
