Subject: Search for functioning teletype machine in DC area
I found your contact information in the context of some teletype machines. And I am hoping that you might be able to point me in the right direction.
We are currently working on a documentary on submarines for National Geographic Television and for one of our reenactments we would love to film a Teletype Machine 60s style that is typing something that we would like to see coming out of the machine. Given that we have 2007 and the computer world is developing so fast I have the challenge to find a teletype machine that is best case scenario in Washington DC or in driving distance to film,
I understand that those machines are huge and it wont be possible to move it anywhere. But if we would find one that is actually working so that we can film the machine typing that would be the best.
I would appreciate to hear from you.
