A library-sale find: Anna Jane Grossman’s Obsolete: An Encyclopedia of Once-Common Things Passing Us By (New York: Abrams Image, 2009): anonymity, bellhops, correction fluid, and so on. On the back flyleaf, stamped in red: DISCARD.

I really need to post a few more things about "relics."

Hey, I have and use correction fluid. Although I've switched over mostly to tape . . .

I’d like to read more “relic” posts.

I still have (somewhere) a box of those little pieces of correction tape. Remove from box, hold against platen, strike key: so easy! :)
