1964 Triumph Gabriele-E Serial # 3443299 1964 Triumph Gabriele-E typewriter, Serial # 3443299 Julian Zadorozny's 1964 Triumph Gabriele-E typewriter. 2022-11-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Julian Zadorozny: 1964 Triumph Gabriele-E Serial # 3443299 Sometimes one obtains a gem on the outskirts of the city. One Sunday morning I decided to drive out to Scarborough, the east suburb of Toronto. On a whim I wanted to try my luck at a Salvation Army thrift store. Driving up, a few minutes to opening, I realized I brought no paper for testing a typewriter. I walked through the aisles looking past racks and dresser drawers trying to spot a typewriter on a shelf.

On the way out I asked a clerk standing at the nearest exit, "Any typewriters?"
"We may still have one," she said. From behind the counter the clerk carried out a brown case. Upon opening I saw the tanned two-toned typewriter marked as a Triumph. I kindly asked for a piece of paper. The alignment was off, but all the keys worked those slugs perfectly. I purchased that Gabirele E.

The Triumph Gabriele -E bears an Elite typeface. Also, it has both a pound and dollar sign key. I started writing on it as soon as I brought it home. Clacking and banging away it is the loudest machine in my collection. The typer is so smooth and easy to use. Triumph was purchased by Max Grundig who purchased Adler's plants creating the Gabriele series of typewriters named after his granddaughter.

This typewriter came with original brushes and a chalk pen, as well as one of the owner's names taped on the inside of the case. All ownership papers were also included, which I enjoy having as historical memorabilia. I hope to do some heavy work with this machine. The Triumph has been recently serviced, with a fix of the escapement, and the machine is ready to be put through its paces.

I purchased my first typewriter in 2000: Brother Pro-Line 707 built in 1969.
I wrote eight hours a day, seven days a week on that tiny machine. I wrote my first unpublished novel and hundreds of short stories on the Brother.
In 2020 I decided to purchase my second typewriter. At ten and counting, I still use and collect these amazing tools for writing.
