This may look like a typewriter, but it's a 'line terminal', with a keyboard, a serial port for connecting to a remote computer, and a printer for outputting anything the computer sends.
This is the 709model(not that I know what the difference between the different models in the 700 series is), and it has an 'Auto Access Cartridge' which I assume is some sort of configurable 'auto dialler software' as it has a backup battery.
On the underside there's two large compartments with wires that looks as if they're for battery packs.
The printer is a thermal type.
Where the paper roll usually rests, there's a list of switch setting and command codes:
To enter - Press "CMD" Valid commands Barberpole test - Press "T"(Offline only) Dial from KYBD - Press "D"(707, 709 only) Manual ANS - Press "A"(707,709 only) Manual ORIG - Press "O"(707, 709 only) To exit - Press "Esc" or "RTN" To Alternate between 80 and 132 columns (STD and Compressed print) from keyboard - Press and hold "CTRL" and "SHIFT", then press "RTN"
