1956 Pink Typist

Hi tech from 1956. The IBM electric typewriter.

The tagline for this 1956 ad for IBM’s electric typewriter reads, “No, the IBM Electric can’t spell but it will give you the best-looking letters you ever saw.” I wonder if they ever imaged that  60 years later someone would be sharing this ad from a machine from that can indeed spell?  For that matter, did anyone imagine that the concept of a letter would be all but obsolete?
