      Thank you! Those electric cabs amaze me, and I’m pleased with how well the Urania works. It’s a noisy typer, but the platen is still reasonably soft. The marvels of old tech!

    I’ve never seen these electric cabs before. Such an interesting arrangement.

      Isn’t that the coolest thing? I never heard about it until I read Doctorow’s Ragtime. The cab appears in one scene, driving Evelyn Nesbit through the slums. Apparently they were too expensive to maintain and the batteries had only so much life in them.
