196X Tower Chieftain

Serial #T4Y 40464

Another English made machine, but this time with a pleasing and snappy touch, less of a swing and almost a click like a button, perhaps the tension on the escapement is a little tight but I like the feel. It does after a while become tiresome compared to my US made one but it is better than the other English one I had. It has small carriage knobs and a return like the 50s US machine rather than the later English ones.
Left in the Outer Banks, North Carolina.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
