For quite some time, Woodward's department stores branded and sold Imperial Good Companion typewriters. This is such an example and quite an unusual example as well, as it is black as an 8-ball. The flat-bed type-basket design which stemmed forth from Remington in the 1920's makes for an interesting typing-experience on such a recent typewriter. However, the conservative appearance and deep-mounted carriage do not warrant this typewriter to be immediately written up as unpleasant. In fact, the desperation of the carriage-return leaver, and the deep travel of the keys create the sensation of a bigger machine. A cat which wants to be a tiger. And it's funky mid-century design might be questioned by some, but I personally find it to represent a certain era in time that is very well depicted in the appearance of this Imperial.
