John Lennon: a portable Imperial typewriter,
with original transfers, Imperial The Good Companion Model T.

Sold for £2,640.

This was one of several of John's possessions from the 1950s donated by his Aunt Mimi to a Liverpool charity involved in music therapy. The other items comprised a Gallotone guitar and a number of 78rpm records. In a letter that Mimi wrote at the time of the donation in the 1980s, she stated that, 'With regards to the request for items in support of your Liverpool handicapped musicians appeal, most requests I have to refuse, however, in this case I feel able to make an exception...John used this very typewriter for some of his first attempts at songwriting...'
