More Wild Colors From Royal - 1929

A beautiful 1929 Royal "P" with Vogue type.

This red/orange Royal is also from 1929.

This is the craziest color of all.

This nice looking Studio 46 was pretty banged up but types great.

This is an interesting finish compared to the glossy black.

This is a favorite of mine but I still don't have one of my own.

The Olivetti Studio 46 was serviced or sold in Granada.

I like this old sticker from Seattle.

Another one from Charlotte, N.C.

The Totem tin is a fairly rare one from England.

Been getting lots of old machines in with these ribbon boxes inside.

The Royal News

This customer had three very different styles of machines.

A real beauty with all the fixings.

Filming an interview, mikes and lights all around.

Cortland, NY- Home of Smith Corona.

Another Great Type-Out

We had a handful of first timers at the Type-Out.

Kizzie had a blast trying all the typewriters.

This is the look of concentration.

Jack's giving advise about typing.

Janet's typing on a Sky-riter she had repaired.

Abraham is looking splendid typing on the Sky-riter.

This 3000 looked so bad when it came in.

This Underwood No. 3 is simply beautiful.

This is the first chrome machine in the shop for repair.

Newest edition to our book collection.

Love the Texas Pride tin.

1955 Olympia SM-3. My new favorite machine.
