First thing that comes to mind is a song from the fifties.

"What is love?
Five feet of temper and a pony tail.
The cutest pony tail,
that waves with a wiggle when she walks."

Sorry, Dwain.
Now, back to our previous topic.

This picture brings back memories!
In the late seventies and early eighties my mother had one of these teletype machines! (She lost her hearing due to an accident when she was twenty one, in '52. It was the only way she could use the phone!) Noisy, it used to scare the cat when she turned it on!
She now has a modern TDD, quiet and the size of a computer keyboard.
It ain't the same!

FYI the specific car production order on the teletype machine in the photo was a 1952 Commander Land Cruiser with a destination of Lake Wales, Florida. The order number was 39984-2 and the car was painted Concord Blue. No serial number is shown since the body had yet to be mated to a frame. If you own a Concord Blue '52 Land Cruiser this may be your car!

By the way, I have the original 8 X 10 glossy. For everything you ever wanted to know about Studebaker production orders see Turning Wheels for April 2001 pages 28-30.

:) Dick: I take it the truck order forms continued looking like the above after newer-style ones for the cars were adopted? When was the change made? :DBP

Teletypes...wow, old technology.
As A kid I remember visiting my dad at (our air) Base Operations...and they had teletypes for a lot of things... Weather, orders, etc.
Later, the TV newsroom I worked in had them, they were so loud most had a special closet for them.
Later, in the military, I send an airman to the Comm Center and get a load everyday with informatuion and tasking from Higher HQ.

Oh, the old days.
Remember when Walter Cronkite's news had clacking teletypes (or their noise) in the background?

When I first began broadcasting, teletypes were the norm for wire services. My first station had a closet wherein lived 3 wire machines for the AP, UPI and Reuters news services. When they were all running, the noise was deafening! We also had a teletype machine in the production room (where commercials are made), but it wasn't attached to anything else - it was a standalone terminal with a punch-tape encoder! The DJ would input information about the commercial he had made, then take the punchtape to the traffic director, who would run it into her "computer" (I use the term loosely) to program in information about the spot.

Ahh, those were the days! When AP finally replaced their teletype machine with a quiet, modern impact printer, our news director took the old wire machine home and made a planter out of it :)

ahhh...reminiscing is such a healthy endeavor (for old folks!).

I worked at the US Navy Communications Station in Yokosuka, Japan, back in the early 70's and we still had dozens of teletypes then - housed in a specially insulated room. Working in there was a health hazard but we didn't let that stop us from having fun. I remember indoctrinating the new recruits by telling them to go the Supply Officer and asking for a box of "line feeds" or rolls of "EOM's".

Teletypes provided an original and a copy using two layers of paper sandwiched with a carbon paper layer. We'd tear off just the outer layer of paper making it look like 2 layers of paper then a layer of carbon. The new recruits were told the factory screwed up and they had to unroll all the rolls and reroll them with the carbon in between. Oh my, we were crying with laughter when they actually attempted it. Nothing like being taught the world is a cruel place, but we had great camaraderie.

Thanks for the picture and memory of how things used to be.
