Originally introduced in 1932, the Imperial Good Companion had been restyled with an more enclosed and rounded outer casing by 1957 when it was re-launched as the Imperial Good Companion Four.  Still an old fashioned 1930's heavy portable at heart, but with modern 1950's styling, I like to think of this model as the 'Morris Minor' of typewriters !   Very British, very upright and very 'nuts and bolts' construction - and kept in production for far too long because it still did the job and customers continued to buy them !  Featuring a 44-character keyboard, and fold up paper rest

Although it has clearly seen some action (as evidenced by the 'rub marks' on the ribbon cover where it has been transported  in its carry case multiple times) it still types as well as the day it was bought in 1957 and has many more years of reliable service ahead of it.   It is housed in a heavy duty brown leatherette carry case with an internal pocket.  A lovely, sturdy British machine !
