Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Company of India was the last maker of typewriters in the world — till 2009, when it, too, ceased production.

“[...] All the manufacturers of office typewriters stopped production, except us. Till 2009, we used to produce 10,000 to 12,000 machines a year.” — Milind Dukle, General Manager-Operations, Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Company
(From Business Standard)

Now take a few moments to view these photos of typewriters and the authors who depended on them. (From the Guardian)
