Carbon paper

As I stood in a queue watching a document required in "triplicate" being filled out, a few thoughts came to my mind during the time taken between two customers - the carbon paper was removed and inserted in between the pink and green coloured sheets and then again between the green and yellow coloured sheets. The green, pink and yellow sheets were to be given to different people.

Is the Carbon paper industry surviving only thanks to government departments? Much like Ambassador cars? And typewriters - have you seen the rows of typists sitting in front of courts?
