How was the typewriter invented?

There has always been the need to communicate and a machine was made that would make life easier for a writer. In 1867 Christopher Sholes, Carlos Glidden and Samuel Soule invented the first practical mechanical typewriter. The idea behind the typewriter was to apply the concept of movable type developed by Gutenberg in the invention of the printing press. In 1714 a patent something like a typewriter was granted to a man named Henry Mill in England in 1714. There is no example of his machine that exists today, but in 1829 William Burt from Detroit Michigan patented his typographer which had characters arranged on a rotating frame. His machine was hard to use and often took longer than to just sit down and write something by hand. Finally, in 1867 the men mentioned above made the first useful typewriter. In 1874 the Remington Model 1 was the first commercial typewriter and sold. The first electric typewriter was made and sold in 1872 by Edison, but these were not common until the 1950's. An electronic typewriter with "memory" first appeared in 1978 (I had one of these).

The last typewriter made in Great Britain was at Brother's UK factory in Wrexham and was donated to the Science Museum in London.
