Capital Type Writing Machine Company

1. Overview

This is just a placeholder...

At present, I know of this machine only through a patent by Charles T. Moore which was assigned to this company. Moore, who had been important in the pre-history of the Linotype, was at later involved in several typewriting and related companies, including the Moore Typewriter Company, American Planograph Company, and possibly the Linomatrix Company and/or the Linomatrix Machine Company.

I am aware of no evidence that the Capital Type Writing Machine Company ever produced a machine.
