Addiator Universal Standard


I found this mechanical slide adding machine in my father’s desk.  It spent many years in his shirt pocket in the time before calculators became portable and inexpensive.  They were produced in Germany starting in 1920 through the mid 70s.  I can even remember my mother using it to keep a running tally while shopping for groceries.
