Magnus Typewriter, 1959
, Seattle (Image from the Seattle Municipal Archives)
Seen above is a City of Seattle employee interviewing a pedestrian, in front of Magnus Typewriter. Notice the posters for Olympia portables and the new Smith-Corona Galaxie. In front of the window is an Olympia demonstrator (mounted on a pole). This photo was taken around the time that Seattle began using electric crosswalk lights, saying either "walk" or "wait"
