About the Story

Twelve Pound Look, The

Commercial typewriters were first introduced in 1874 but did not become common in the workplace until the mid-1880s. The first typewriters were marketed for transcribing dictation, which was considered women’s work. The typewriter created new jobs for women outside of traditional jobs like charwomen, laundresses, domestic service, and factory work.
