Royal Bar-lock 14

Invented in 1889 by Charles Spiro watchmaker from New York, The bar-Lock was a down stroke design with a full keyboard made originally with a distinctive front cover around the arc of vertical type bars.
 It was remarkable because of its double keyboard – for upper and lower case, and the ornamentation on the front of the machine.
Royal Bar-lock was the name used to market the Columbia Bar-lock in Europe. The Columbia sold out completely the production of the machines to the Barlock Typewriter Company Ltd of London in 1914 and the production of the machines until 1946.
