    typewriter…
    (77 items)

    The type-bars on the Empire are spread out like a fan (see detail below) and thrust straight to the platen, to converge at a single point, when typing. With a double shift, each key gives three functions, uppercase, lowercase, and a figure.

    The Empire was a wonderful typewriter, great to type on, very reliable, and not too large or heavy. It sold very well, with many surviving examples.
