Poor Typewriter

I was walking down the stairs of the Hall of Justice in Davao City when i noticed a pile of machines at the back of a secluded window. I got curious so i took a closer look and found these old typewriters stocked and dumped. The rusts depicts how useless it became.

I felt sorry for the inventor who had the brilliant idea of inventing this machine. The first practical typewriter was invented by Christopher Latham Sholes, and was marketed by the Remington Arms company in 1873. Before the computer, this was the most convenient and efficient way in typing jobs, especially in offices and schools. With the fast changing technology, i wonder where my laptop end up twenty years from now.
