1971 Brother Webster XL-747 Serial # E1377864 1971 Brother Webster XL-747 typewriter, Serial # E1377864 Julian Zadorozny's 1971 Brother Webster XL-747 typewriter. 2023-08-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Julian Zadorozny: 1971 Brother Webster XL-747 Serial # E1377864 This Brother Webster XL-747 was purchased for twenty dollars. The owners aunt died and left this typewriter behind. I do enjoy Brother typewriters, and my first was a 1969 Brother Pro-Line 707. The Webster is similar to the Pro-Line however what is enjoyable, and different, is the repeat spacer button that allows the carriage to move quickly. Something to do with weights plus the escapement which equals fun. This typewriter has been cleaned, greased and a new ribbon installed. A shift key was missing so an Underwood key fit into the empty space. The machine has been gifted to a young writer who wants to try their hand at working distraction free.

I purchased my first typewriter in 2000: Brother Pro-Line 707 built in 1969.
I wrote eight hours a day, seven days a week on that tiny machine. I wrote my first unpublished novel and hundreds of short stories on the Brother.
In 2020 I decided to purchase my second typewriter. At ten and counting, I still use and collect these amazing tools for writing.
