The opening scenes show the shop in which Mr. Sholes, the inventor of the typewriter, is at work upon his model. They show also how he became discouraged and how some of his friends deserted him while others came to his aid, and how a promoter kindly introduced him to a great capitalist, who undertakes the manufacture of his machine. Then we go through the factory of a large typewriting concern 40 years later, and watch the various complicated machines, each doing its part of the great work of turning out almost innumerable typewriters. We see the parts cast, ground, drilled and finally assembled. The picture closes with the vision of the inventor and capitalist now realized, the typewriter in the public schools.
