Obsolete but Beautiful…

Obsolete – definition: no longer functioning or in general use : out of date

There is something endearing about old typewriters. I’m not talking about the electronic ones but the finger aching, push as hard as you can, kind. They were manufactured in a time when design was highly regarded as opposed to the functionality of the machine. However, now we can appreciate the pride of workmanship so evident in their production. The design features and attention to detail are beautiful, something we lost in functionality.

Just compare these two photos – which one is the more esthetically pleasing?

As some of you may have read, (https://mandyevebarnett.com/2013/06/10/stirred-up-vehicle-memories/) I also prefer older vehicles as well. They have so much more character.

What obsolete objects do you love and admire?
