I'd like to see the typewriter that could make a carbon copy of a catalog card. Most impressive. Interesting for me to see the name "Frazee," which I've only come upon in local (Salida, CO) history. Steve Frazee was a popular Western author (and author of Westerns) and his books saw some Hollywood action. He also published a book in 1961 called "More Damn Tourists," loosely based on Salida life, which is instructive for locals who moan as if tourism were somehow a new part of our regional economy, supplanting railroads, mining, and ranchin' thanks to more damn Liberals ... Ok, I'll stop. But of course, a check of Superpages.com shows a great many Frazees out there. Only twelve Ptaks in Colorado, though.
