That’s too many keys for a typewriter. Could these be early accounting machines?
I agree with vistavision. The color pattern of the keys especially makes it look like an early accounting typewriter. Here’s the link to a drawing of one from 1911
Here’s a link to a different exposure of this image. I agree it’s not a typewriter, albeit Hine took many photographs of typists and office workers.
Definitely a comptometer. There’s an image of something similar here. Also see here. Typists and comptometrists might be a better caption.
there’s no way that the date on this is correct. that was taken in the twenties.
The IT department wanted to get Macs, but management decided on PC.
I agree that it’s the ’20s. Two of the girls have Marcel waves, which became popular in the ’20s.
