June Metal Type News

The June edition of the Metal Type newsletter is now out.

This month’s vehicle is “Bauxite No2” a steam locomotive that was built 10 years before the Linotype was invented.

Click here to take a look at this month’s video:

There were plenty of interesting articles posted onto the forum, one I’d particularly like to highlight is Help Restore the Oldest Newspaper Press in Britain.


There’s a chance to see video of this magnificent press’s last ever run, and details of how to donate money to help restore the press back into working condition.

Also on the forum, a half-hour promotional film for the “Newsday” newspaper, Long Island, USA called Dateline Long Island. Made in 1964, the film is a good trip down memory lane, with plenty of hot metal newspaper action thrown in for good measure!

All the Best
