One of a kind

Day 6/365 - "One of a kind"

How's this for unique? Betcha don't have one of these sitting around in your garage. I wouldn't be surprised if most of you don't even know what it is.... :) It's a genuine original Burroughs adding machine. And it still works. It is sitting in my garage because when it came several years ago from ebay it was wrapped in towels that I would swear a cat had peed on. Repeatedly. Needless to say it really reeked and needed to be aired out. When I eventually got around to bringing it in and putting it up I discovered that it was a couple of inches too long to fit. Oops.


  1. Oh wow...that is unique!! Very cool!

  2. Def something you don't see every day Brandi. Are you a collector of gadgets from days gone by?

  3. Oh my goodness! That is very unique!!

  4. I am a collector of various odds and ends. I was looking for an old Remmington typewriter when I ran across this adding machine. I read up on them and thought they were pretty cool so I decided to add it to collection.
