ROYAL TYPEWRITER COMPANY entered the field in about 1906,
Royal produced what we might term an intermediate body or appearance style, known as either Model H or Model KHM, from 1935 through 1938, and then introduced the common Model KMM as seen here. This machine incorporates the patented Magic Margin system wherein movement of the carriage to a desired point is followed by depression of the margin key; the margin is then set automatically at that point.
These are rugged and reliable machines which are so common today because they sold so well at the time. They are truly first-class typewriters in every sense of the word. It is interesting to note the number of major design changes in the period displayed until now, and it should also be noted that the KMM includes many small but significant changes over the previous machine. By the end of the 1930's, this approach had helped Royal become the highest selling brand of typewriter in the world.
