Hello all! It has been a few months since I have posted. I've been sorting and organizing this month. Found this clip and photo of my dad back in the late 1940's. He was the owner and editor of our local newspaper. He and his partner are making up the type on a Linotype machine. The heavy metal type slugs were assembled in iron frames called chases. The whole assembly of type was wedged into the chase and lifted onto the four page press. Each page weighed about 125 pounds!!
