Atkinson Model Portable Braillewriter

This machine was designed so that the paper would remain flat during brailling. The paper table moves under a stationary embossing head. Its appearance is quite different from other braillewriters with the keys and space bar mounted at the top of a rectangular case. The finish is textured and black in color.
