Where's the typewriter screen?

To The Editor:
That is a great photo (CMN issue of 6/5/12) of the child trying out the ’40s Royal typewriter at the Skene Library Lawn Sale in Fleischmanns on Memorial Day weekend.  He came back several times and seemed really fascinated by the machine!  

Some children asked us, “But where is the screen?” and their parents had to explain to them what a typewriter was and how it worked.
