The Imperial Royal Family
Posted on November 15, 2013
Another typewriter with an identity crisis! This one’s an Imperial Safari made in the USA, segment shift, serial number SA7795010 –
As far as I can ascertain, this is a rebadged Royal Safari circa 1967/68.
Once again I’m indebted to Robert Messenger and his invaluable OzTypewriter resource:
There’s an irksome line space lever scratch on the left side of the ribbon cover, but otherwise this typewriter is in excellent working order and has a real spring to its step. It’s very easy to type on.
Probably not to everyone’s taste, but I do like this style of typewriter.
