Look what arrived in the mail recently! Purchased from Mr. Typewriter in Florissant, MO., I got six brand new ribbons for my Royal Futura 800.
… pressing the Red Royal button (Thanks Portable Typewriter Forum!)
Of course, I spent about 20 minutes trying and failing to figure out how to get the ribbon threaded correctly (and smearing ink all over the keys!). I had to call in the Colin Calvary.
He got it going right away!
Hence, Colin got the honors of typing the first official sentence!
