The last of the Empire. NOT Branded as Empire - Corona, or Smith Corona, but just Empire for a brief period from 1959-1960 before the Empire Corona and ultimately Smith Corona branding took over.

A lover of the written word, I was bitten by the typewriter bug at the beginning of 2019 when I embarked on a Joyful Odyssey to track down a vintage Olympia SM 7/8/9, (I didn't know the model number at the time) that my mother had owned and which I had used to type my college applications in the late 1980's. I have acquired quite a number since, and have enjoyed learning about the history, mechanics, and true variety of these machines.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Empire Sky-Riter on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Empire Serial Number page and the Empire Sky-Riter By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
