193X Remington Portable Serial # EC 42046 193X Remington Portable typewriter, Serial # EC 42046 Martha Lea's 193X Remington Portable typewriter. 2019-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Martha Lea: 193X Remington Portable Serial # EC 42046 The first of my rescued typewriters. The auction photo just showed a rusty heap emerging out of a large plastic bag.
It has now typed many pages.

I know this machine was made not that long after 1931, in London as I have another with the same prefix and a dated guarantee slip. (details & pics of that one to follow)

Some minor issues, slightly bent key levers, and the occasional piling tantrum, but a great machine.
