The Typewriter Database 1933 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 646456 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rob Bowker: 1933 Underwood Portable 4 Bank Serial # 646456 This came from south London, via a bric-a-brac shop and somewhere in Ireland before that. Having enquired about the name Bryan S Ryan on the paper table, it seems likely to be a service sticker. Current director, Adrienne Prendergast replies, 'Bryan S Ryan was established in 1948. However, we would have been a major supplier of typewriters and service in those years and it is likely that this is a service sticker that we placed on it.'

I'm an opportunistic collector and user. Yep, I have a habit, but I'm in control, OK?
