The Granville Automatic is quite a unique typing machine. It gets its name from the ability of the operator to control the basic typewriter functions all from the keyboard. The two upper large, nickel-plated, keys return the carriage. The two lower large, nickel-plated, keys are for shifting to upper case. There is also a key for carriage release and one to even advance the roller!
