A digression on the Linotype machines at the Kerrville Daily Times and Mountain Sun.

I recently posted some photos of the pressroom of the old Kerrville Daily Times, including this photo:

Linotype machine and operator, Kerrville Daily Times,

And then I ran across this snippet of a film -- about Linotype machines, and I thought it might interest one or two of you --

  1. I loved the old linotype machines.

    I love their sound and smell.

    I loved the engineering of the machine.

    They seemed so complicated, but once you were around them for a while, they were much less confusing.

    I loved them, and I miss them.

    I'm not saying that we should get rid of computers; heavens no, I would be lost without my computers.

    However, I wish that young people today could witness a linotype machine in operation.

    I think they would love it, too.
