Typewriter collector from the UK. Had my first portable in my youth (Imperial Good Companion Model 1). Later changed to an Olympia Splendid 66 and then in November 1967 had my first standard an Imperial 70 which I still have and use to this day. Have collected on and off ever since. Though I have an Imperial Model D of 1919 in my collection my interest is more the models available during the 1960's when I first learnt to touch type.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Imperial 800 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Imperial Serial Number page and the Imperial 800 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
