Cherokee Typewriter Repair used to be in this building.
Don't think I don't hear all you young whippersnappers out there muttering,"huh? what's a typewriter?"
Well, the typewriter has gone the way of the public pay phone - you just don't find too many around. Hence the closing of Cherokee Typewriter Repair.
It's a shame, too. The gentleman who owned the business had a little museum of office automation in there, from manual typewriters to clunky adding machines from many decades ago. He retired a few years ago, and the building has not been occupied since. It's a forlorn little scene that reminds me that time flies. It's OK, though. I sure wouldn't trade my Mac for a typewriter!
p.s. I promise Knoxville still has people roaming around, and I'll show you some of them if I can ever get my new set of shots downloaded.
