Tap, Tap, Tappin’ on Heaven’s Door

From today’s NYT: Bob Dylan typing in a room above the Cafe Espresso in Woodstock NY. PHOTO: Douglas Gilbert. Typewriters figured heavily in Dylan’s work; songs had to be typed out for copyright filings, Bob’s notes showed he often refined even “final” typed copies. What machine is BD using here, I wonder?

  1. Royal Safari or Sabre, or Imperial equivalent, most likely.

  2. I would guess – Royal Safari🙂

  3. All I can think of are things it’s not. Does the curve suggest SCM? Royal?

  4. And with Robert Messenger’s comprehensive Dylantypewriterology (Thanks, Piotr!), we can agree that Bob’s on a Royal Safari. Going to put a Dylan platter on the table now.
