I'm an architect by day and an incorrigible tinkerer by night. I prowl thrift stores, auctions, and antique shops looking for old mechanical things to fix up. My entry drugs were fountain pens and wind-up tin toys, but before long I had gone to the harder stuff - watches and clocks. Finally, I broke down and decided to try "just one" typewriter - a 1948 Royal KMM. I told myself I wouldn't do any more until I got rid of it, but didn't know you could get hooked so easily. Fourteen typewriters later, I still have the KMM, and am still looking for that next fix. I'm expecting an intervention from the family soon.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal 890 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal 890 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
