1937 Royal KHM

Serial #KHM-2126043

This is in rough shape, but it shows really well (in the right light.)

I really don't know why I have so many photos of this one. Perhaps I saved the ones from the eBay listing... I know that I took the ones on the granite countertop, anyway.

I have always loved typewriters along with other kinds of well-engineered tools and devices such as slide rules, calculators (particular HP), radios, cameras (particularly Nikons), and microscopes. In addition to appreciating their intrinsic beauty and utility, they represent "things that need to be figured out to be understood". That's how I first learned about computers and programming in the 1970s, by figuring things out for myself. It's activity in which I never seem to tire of engaging.

Although communities have arisen around other collection interests, typewriters have the advantage that those who use them also typically enjoy communicating through words, whether those words are about the machines themselves or their lives, hopes, dreams, or expressions of beauty. There's much to be appreciated here.

I have no idea who "Jeff" is.

She's a beauty if you don't shine a harsh light too hard on her.

Ok, this really shows her cosmetic flaws...
