Makerspace and the typewriter

Elizabeth demonstrates how documents used to be produced.
If you wanted two copies of the document, you needed to put 2 pieces of paper in with carbon paper between the two copies. This is where the term “cc” comes from in email, (carbon copy).
If you wanted more than three copies, you had to type it all again. No photocopiers were available before the 70’s
