1928 Royal Portable Serial # P101824 1928 Royal Portable typewriter, Serial # P101824 Michael Hoehne's 1928 Royal Portable typewriter. 2019-06-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1928 Royal Portable Serial # P101824 Got this from a friend who knows I am looking for them. Pretty well-preserved dark green alligator paint in a dark green cloth-covered wooden case the “Royal” embossed into it. Works well except that the slugs were completely filled with ink.

This is the one with a notice in the case,”Typewriters with this finish should NOT be cleaned with ALCOHOL”.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
