The adding machine was used by both my grandparents. My grandfather worked for GM most of his adult life. As with today's tough economic times with the big three car companies, my grandfather was out of work many times through his years with GM due to lay offs. My grandparents invested in several apartment buildings and rented them out for additional income to make ends meet. This was the adding machine that crunched all the numbers for them. I know the adding machine was used in the 40's and 50's. I'm so fascinated that the adding machine still has a little adding machine tape left, and I'm sure it was placed there by my sweet gramps. I have no idea the actual age of the machine. Isn't it crazy how technology has advanced in the past 70 years. It just blows my mind. If any of my fellow bloggers knows anything about antiques and could tell me something about these amazing old machines, I'd truly appreciate it.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
