After a quick introduction to aerograms, the kids were eager to lay hands on the machines.
Only three out of five turned up.

Fell, Olympia SM2 – Mr. Man-hands was no kid, but he did write a couple of aerograms with much concentration, and said he did find it enjoyable.

Each kid made an average of three drafts before they submitted their final piece to be sent to some very nice children in New Zealand. Before I left they said that I’d have to bring my typewriters over more often…

Time to go disinfect all them machines.
