Vintage 1950's Esterbrook Blue Fountain Pen J Series Double Jeweled
Looking back in retrospect, I take the side of the De La Salle brothers. Today, in the year 2017, I hate ball point pens. They are crap. You can buy ten of them for one dollar in crappy Walmart. In my book they are shit.
So, I am going back to a good fountain pen, probably an Esterbrook. I had several of them and I remember them with happiness.
Here is a link to an excellent history of Esterbrook fountain pens. Look for the section labeled Esterbrook History in the middle of the page.
Today, I have ditched organized religion, and become an agnostic, but I still remember fondly my 1950's school. It was a simple time.
