HN Theater has aggregated all Hacker News stories and comments that mention CuriousMarc's video "Teletype Model 19 (and Model 15) Demonstration".
Youtube Summary
We demonstrate our fully restored Model 19 Teletype (from 1940) talking to a Model 15 Teletype (from 1930). This is a demonstration format, from the user operation point of view, to wrap up the restoration. The explanation of how the selector works is new; however, most features were already covered in much more detail as we restored them one by one through many previous videos. The patient folks who learned it all through the restoration process might know most of this already, and much more. And of course Teletype subsidiary of AT&T manufacturing arm Western Electric, not hard disk maker Western Digital... Oh my old brain.

CuriousMarc's whole channel is excellent including the restoration effort leading up to this, but I found this demo here particularly well done - two working teletypes wired together, with succinct explanation of the principles of how they operate, and even the printing of an old Navy tape from the 1960s. Amazing how far digital technology had already come in the 30s and 40s.
