Can't really think of anything except to practice stenography (?). Your dump finds amaze me, who would actually keep this since the 1940's??
If memory serves me correct, my roomie in college had one of those machines and she was taking a Court Stenographry course... boy, I guess I'm dating myself now, aren't I?!! (No need to put me in the drawing, just fun to play along)
Look like short hand/dictation machine to me and steno pads. I didn't do very well in short-hand--put pretty good in typing. LOL
Hi My guess it is a short hand steno machine used by a court steno reporter/person, which uses short hand to record testimony and court proceedings. The pads appear to be instructions on short hand.
Court reporter's keyboard or shorthand??? lol I don't know. sandie
Is it for shorthand?
Have no idea what the purpose of the pads would have been, but 1940 is the year of my birth!
Steno pads. Always something interesting at the dump..smile.. Amy
Your dump has the best stuff. I have some of my Mom's steno note pads like these. She went to secretarial school in 1947! She still used shorthand sometimes when she wrote us notes.I hadn't thought of that in a while - thanks for the memory!
That machine is a stenograph machine for typing shorthand. Lucky you for having found the instruction manuals. I hope that you don't use shorthand on your blog, lol...Have a great day.JB
My first thought was it's a machine for court reporting but I don't know the name of it.
Th book up front is shorthand & the others are instructions/ lessons on using the steno machine . . . Cute finds!
I took shorthand in high school! I recognize those symbols! I believe it's a machine used for court reporting..I did a bit of that in high school too!
Yep, stenographer pads and stenotype machine. I took shorthand in high school too and used it through college to take notes. Don't remember any of it now though!
