The Typewriter Database 1946 Royal KMM Serial # 18-3195690 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1946 Royal KMM Serial # 18-3195690 This Toronto-made machine with its 18" carriage takes up half my living room, so I tried to sell it for a while, first as a part of Toronto's history, and then as part of an "experience" (I photographed it with a glass of my finest scotch). I had no takers, so I've decided to keep it, which now goes for all of my brood, unless someone wants to make a trade. It's big and heavy but at 70 years old it works really well. Besides, I sold a Royal KMM with a standard carriage, for no reason other than I needed money to buy more typewriters, and I miss it. This one's just like it, on steroids.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
