Since typewriter repair shops have nearly disappeared, it’s no surprise that one of the few remaining places to get your typewriter fixed – U.S. Office Machine Co. in Highland Park – has a couple of video tributes to watch. Ruben Flores is now in charge of the Figueroa street shop that his late father, Jesse, founded in 1962. Typewriters – like vinyl records – are enjoying a revival of sorts, and U.S. Office Machine is ready to keep those surviving machines in shape. “It’s exciting that people are going back to the typewriter,” Flores said in one of the videos.
