Acme Office Machines was established in the 1950s in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood. By 1973, Acme Office Machines had two locations--the former E.W. Hall location at 2015 3rd Avenue, in downtown Seattle, and a new Wallingford location, pictured above. Around this time, they serviced the Olivetti below:

Notice that the dealer number has numbers only--before 1974, Acme advertised their phone number as "ME-3-3355" ME was short for MElrose, which was replaced by "63"
