Millie Motts

I would like to introduce you to Millie Motts:

Actually, we don't know who this lady is, but she's one of many smiling vintage faces you'll find on the splendid blog and visual archive, Millie Motts. Regina Porter maintains the blog and calls herself an old soul. "I'm a collector of 1940s-60s just-about-anything," she says. "Fashion magazines, children's elementary school readers, textbooks, found photos, and miscellaneous ephemera... All of the images are from my personal archive. Old Charm magazines (for the working woman) have the best typewriter ads that I’ve found. I have a stack of old magazines that’s about 3 feet high…and growing. I always tell myself that I’m not going to buy any more until I’ve scanned what I have, but then I get to the store and know that if I don’t get whatever wonderful thing I find, it might not be there the next time!"

In honour of Typewriter Week, Regina has posted some images from her collection and also directs us to some previous typewriter-related posts: Alive After Five, Conferences & Coffee Breaks, Just my type, and Vacation. There's a lot more to see on the Millie Motts flickr site as well. I think Millie is just my type of gal!
