Antique Typewriter, working

The company LC Smith & Brothers Typewriter Company, New York, USA was founded in 1903. It was founded by the four Smith brothers, founders of Smith Premier Typewriter Co. The Smith Premier typewriter was a "blind" typewriter because the typist could not see the written text. In 1896, the first "visible" typewriter was introduced to the market, allowing the typist to see what had been typed without lifting the car.
