Canadian Made: 1951 Underwood Leader Typewriter

This Underwood Leader (circa 1951) was manufactured at Toronto's Underwood Elliot Fisher Ltd facility. Today it lives among Canada's Science and Technology Museum (Ingenium) artefact collection in Ottawa.

The inspiration behind our Canadian Made: 1951 Underwood Leader Art Print

I remember spending many hours back in school high hacking out essays on an old Underwood typewriter. That old girl taught me a lot. It taught me to think. It was unforgiving and you had to be disciplined—no backspace/delete/save. But most of all, it helped me discover the power of words and grow as an artist. A picture may paint a thousand words, but a thousand well-crafted words paint a vivid picture in your mind.

This print makes a great addition to art collectors that appreciate vintage-inspired themes and love the power of the written word.
