EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph from 1872, we are transported back in time to witness a groundbreaking moment in history. Meet Lillian Sholes, the first typist, as she sits gracefully at her desk, using a prototype typewriter invented by her father, Christopher Latham Scholes. The late 19th century was an era of innovation and progress, and this image perfectly encapsulates that spirit. Lillian's profile is beautifully captured as she focuses intently on the keyboard before her. Her poised demeanor reflects both confidence and determination - qualities necessary for someone venturing into uncharted territory. As the daughter of the inventor himself, it is clear that Lillian possesses not only skill but also a deep understanding of this revolutionary machine. The prototype typewriter itself stands proudly on the desk beside her; its intricate design showcasing Christopher Scholes' ingenuity. This photograph serves as a testament to his brilliance and foresight in creating such an influential device. As we gaze upon this remarkable portrait, we cannot help but marvel at how far technology has come since then. From these humble beginnings arose an invention that would forever change communication worldwide. This stunning print from Granger Art on Demand allows us to appreciate the pioneers like Lillian Sholes who fearlessly embraced new possibilities and paved the way for future generations of typists around the world.
