Frank Goes In Search of Old Printing Equipment

Published on August 16, 2019

Frank takes an archaeological excursion through a Charlestown, Mass., warehouse, built in the late 19th century in an attempt to compete for freight traffic with the Port of New York. Much later, when the Museum of Printing was searching for a home, the warehouse served as a storage facility for historic presses, metal type, typesetters, and early computer equipment—much of which still remains.

Thanks, Frank! That was an amazing, but all-too-quick, journey through the contemporary history of printing in America. This all takes a warehouse, but 100 years from now a "museum" may be a closet filled with laptops and smart phones.
