Remington Monarch 1, retro, Typewriter

New typewriter!!!

On Monday I popped into a club I belong to and they had a typewriter for sale. Now, ive wanted one for ages! I wanted to use it with my journaling 🙂

This model is a Remington Monarch 1, made approximately in 1973. I will get a new ribbon for it as it needs one and I need to sort out the clips that move the ribbon when typing, as they are failing to move. I cannot wait to get it up and running! Perhaps that book everyone has told me I should write will finally be written!!!! 
Better pictures will follow, once it’s cleaned up 🙂
