HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY!
Yes, believe it! The ever young HERMES BABY is turning 80 these days! After presenting a preliminary HERMES BABY family tree (see last post), I am happy to show you a HERMES BABY of the first series. A fascinating artefact! And it types nicely.
You will notice from the other pictures that I patched up the main picture a bit by adding the second spool which is absent from the original - thanks Photoshop.
HERMES BABY #65165, manufactured by E. Paillard & Cie S.A., Yverdon, Switzerland, in 1935!
