BIRRC-H0069.jpg

Notes:  Housed in a black leather case with a handle and locks. The typewriter has 2 small ‘hooks’ to lift it out of the case. ‘The Empire’ is written on top of the typewriter in gold and green. Some of the keys are quite stiff, however, all but ‘Y’ work. The paint layer on top of the typewriter has begun to flake away, as has some of the leather lining in the bottom right corner of the base onto which the typewriter is attached.
Empire model - began manufacturing 1892.
