Remington Portable 1

These little machines were aggressively marketed and were a great success. They were the first truly portable typewriters with four-row keyboards, and in this category they had no competition until Royal and Underwood introduced the four-row notebooks in 1926. The "folding character bar" mechanism raises the type bars to an angle of 45 degrees, the printing position, by means of a lever on the right side of the typewriter. The rate bars should go back down when the typewriter returns to its box. In 1924 the price of the Remington Portable was $ 60
