My anachronism's broken.

Low-tech repair help needed. I have acquired a Royal Quiet De Luxe manual typewriter (The World's First Truly Modern Portable Typewriter!). The booklet has a 1948 copyright date. The cord that pulls the carriage is broken, though, and I'm not sure exactly how to thread a replacement one. Does anybody have one of these typewriters who could take a photo of the back, or otherwise instruct me?
