Stainsby-Wayne Braille-Writer

Thought to be the first model made by this manufacturer, this compact portable braille writer is capable of interlining. The keys travel from right to left along a reglette attached to a wooden base. The base can be moved along an accompanying wooden board onto which 10 x 13 1/2 inch paper is clamped. The wooden board is hinged and folds for easy storage. A metal plate on the board reads "The Stainsby-Wayne Braille-Writer."

Size: 3 x 13½ x 2¼ inches (braille writer)
1¼ x 12 x 14½ inches (wooden board)
