The World 2

First year of production:
1890
Company:
Pope Manufacturing Company , Boston , USA
Serial nr:
9106

Started by the World Typewriter Company, production of this charming index machine was later taken up by the Pope Manufacturing Company of Boston, that also produced bicycles. Pope placed the instructions for use of the World 2 typewriter on a small metal plate on the wooden base of the machine.

The only difference between the World 2 and the earlier World 1 is that the World 2 wrote both lower case and upper case letters.

For further information on the World typewriter, see the entry for the World 1.
