1938 Empire Baby Empire Serial # 7047 1938 Empire Baby Empire typewriter, Serial # 7047 Nick Winter's 1938 Empire Baby Empire typewriter. 2020-01-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Winter: 1938 Empire Baby Empire Serial # 7047 Picked this one up today from a good friend who'd collected it for me from a seller when I was out of town. I bought it with my lunch money one day when I wasn't feeling hungry! I was surprised at how small and light it was, then I realised it was literally called the Featherweight when sold as a Hermes and marvelled at my own stupidity for a little while.

The carriage sticks in the middle at the moment (probably due to the heinous quantities of filth on it) so this typewriter will be getting a makeover over the next few days. It doesn't seem to have substantial mechanical differences from later models of the Baby but for whatever reason I find it so much better to use. This little baby might be coming on some adventures with me in the near future...

Sold May 2019.
