Derry is to have Ireland’s first Typewriter Museum, when a plan by the owner of the town’s best-known independent bookshop is realised.

The museum will be located in the basement of Little Acorns Bookstore on Society Street.

Little Acorns owner Jenni Doherty said: “The museum will be Ireland's only Typewriter Museum, located in the basement below the shop floor. It will also accommodate bespoke music and literary events. I’m hoping to have it open around Hallowe’en.”

Jenni has been collecting vintage typewriters for many years and the collection currently numbers over 100 – with more to come before the grand opening at the end of October.
