Description: Clicking, dinging, pecking, and sliding noises riveted through the large open typing room as the secretaries, who were always girls in that day, placed letters on a stark white page that formed the words her boss had dictated. The typewriter keyboard was the mode of communication, the vehicle that allowed the words to spill from the mind and land on solid ground. Stacks of typed orders, letters and such rested on the corner of each girls desk. Every thirty of so minutes, The stoic supervisor, Bee, whose hair was always in a bun, made her rounds to collect the projects making sure each girl stayed on course. The words they typed thought the day were not their own. They were the words of their male bosses, the "Mad Men" of the corporate world. The men whose father's brought America into the twentieth century. The types of table that held their tool was like this dropside Machine Age typing table. This table has an operating stationary foot pedal that acts a brake. If the table needs to mobilize, it can be released for easy rolling. Dimensions: 18"w closed, 36"w open x 15"d x 27" h. 15 x 18 x 27 in
