The young typewriter collector at my school brought one of his latest acquisitions to my office today. It was a machine I had not seen in person before, an Imperial Good Companion. With a serial number starting with a B, this model is from 1932. I didn't get to type with it, but it is quite a looker.
In fact, it looks a lot like my Remington model 1 (or 2) but clearly the lineage is different as this article on the Portable Typewriters blog points out.
The one thing this typewriter needs is a carriage return lever. Please let me know if anyone in the typosphere has one to spare and I will let this young man's family know.
