"In the `30s-`40s, these pinwheel-type mechanical adding machines (a.k.a. arithmometers) were fixtures in banks, accounting offices and stores. Progress brought electronic calculators, then computers. Very few of the old machines survived. We rescued a few and restored them to their original condition. Russian markings, including CCCP, plainly visible on each. Dubbed "Felix" after Felix Dherzhinskiye, founder of the Checka (which ultimately became the infamous KGB) and the factory that made these beauties." Sovietski Collection.
