In the pink

The pink Olympia typewriter has a new owner: Melissa Collins, a young Portland piano tuner.

“This is my dream typewriter!” she exuded at seeing the hefty, yet pretty-in-pink portable displayed on my dining room table.

What better hands to place the Olympia SM7 in than those of a piano tuner?

The typewriter came from the fascinating and bountiful estate of Pearl Rubenstein, who died last January.

Pearl, a friend through her daughter Lisa, had an eye for art and a quick and gracious smile.

Thinking of the Olympia's belonging to the elated Melissa, I can see Pearl's grin.
