1904 – seems like a very premature death notice! Fortunately pens and typewriters continue to have a life.
There is a part of me that is suspicious about this news article. It reads a bit like marketing ploy for the typewriter industry. That said, the typewriter genuinely affected the pen industry, a case of one technology supplanting the other. So I don’t know. (Now, where is that tissue paper?)
