As you may or may not have already realised, I love reading and writing (when I am fortunate enough to have the time to!) and also things that have a vintage, antique feel to it. Already, it must be clear to you that, during my spare time, a small, aged woman creeps her way out of the seemingly empty abyss that is my subconscious, and makes herself quite at home in her favourite frayed, crimson sofa-chair accompanied with a hot mug of tea. Yes, you are not wrong. And although some may shun their inner wise old selves, I, on the other hand, embrace it! But how…?
To my/her delight, recently I acquired an antique typewriter for my birthday. In an instant, I fell in love. I honestly believe that it is every aspiring writer’s dream to possess a vintage typewriter – and I am ultimately incredibly grateful to be able to own one myself.
The model I have is from the Imperial range (The Good Companion) and was made in Leicester during about 1936.
I managed to stage a pretty decent photograph (if I do say so myself):
If at all, you, or someone you know, is looking for a typewriter and wants some advice or to hear my experience, feel free to contact me!
Thanks for tuning in!
