The Remington that never was

Byron A. Brooks, who designed the Remington Standard No. 2 (the first double-case typewriter), invented typewheel machines known as the Crown and People’s. But he did not apparently design one for Remington. It is interesting to note, however, that in 1887 Remington was considering such a machine. Nothing materialized from this effort.

      Yes, I wonder how many other machines Remington contemplated but never completed.
