|Our Ebay score, and the start of what might one day turn into a collection.|
It doesn't look as dingy in person, promise!
|Letterpress printed text-weight sheets perfect for typing!|
|When WWII started, Royal stopped making typewriters and switched to war manufacturing. |
There are rare Royal typewriters made for the US Navy in 1942, which you can find on Ebay,
but mostly they made machine guns and airplane parts.
They picked up typewriter production again in 1945.
I usually give names to my favorite things: ex, Vera is the letterpress, Esther the bass guitar... Looking at the popular baby names of 1941, I'm leaning towards Frances (#31) or Margaret (#12), ooh, or Peggy (#39)!
I'm liking Peggy, what do you think?
