Chester Henry has been a part of Star City and Bygone Alley since he was a young man. Now he runs the shop the Rescued Word, with his granddaughter, Clare. They repair typewriters, the kind that used a ribbon and carbon paper. Mirabelle has an oldie but goodie and the L is not working at all. It’s a matter of the key coming undone and a pretty simple fix.
