The first keyboards were a part of manual typewriters.

Manual typewriters use a system of keys and levers to manually lift an arm with a character on it and force it through an inked ribbon so that the character was stamped onto a blank page.

Early keyboards had various layouts; it was found that if the keys were arrange alphabetically the typist would type too fast and the mechanical levers would jam together.

The modern "qwerty" keyboard was proposed not to make people type faster, but to make them type slower.
