Daniel Hatadi, of course. Smacks a double with the correct guess that this was Dame Christie's machine and if she wrote The Mousetrap on this, someone should take it out back and give it a good beating ala Office Space.
I started this to free up time for writing (which is going OK, thanks for asking) but I spent a huge amount of time looking for Dorothy Parker's typewriter because I love Parker. She was much more interesting than Agatha but it seems no one has built a little shrine like this to her, which is a shame. Next time I'm having drinks in the Algonquin, I'll bring it up.
Speaking of shrines, check out the next entry.
