I was curious, so despite the answer coming from a couple of nice people above, I went digging too. Unfortunately that page and Google seem to be unable to recognize the character itself in a search string. Would be nice if you could just copy & paste for a search. Windows Character Map also got me nowhere. Searching on Google for “hot springs,” however, does pull up plenty of pics.

* - That “character” list included machine controls for printers and the like, including enter, delete, carriage return, etc. This is really taking me back…anybody here ever use a non-electric typewriter? >D
I didn’t even see an electric typewriter until my senior year of high school (1960) when we got a total of 2 electrics in our school. I still have a couple of the old uprights hanging around in the den, an Underwood and a Remington I believe. They still work. Remember the IBM Selectrics with the interchangeable balls?
