Bruce Anderton recently digitised some of his old photographic slide collection, and sent these in to Metal Type.
Says Bruce: “Note space at the side of the masthead; this was where the edition seal was printed in red (the only colour in the paper in those days); latterly the “fudge” – or late news secor, on the back page – was also printed in red.
Main heading in 72pt Franklin Gothic; other faces used were Century Modern and bold, with a sprinkling of various Tempo faces, Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed, and various oddments.
By this time nearly all the headings were Ludlow-set, whereas earlier a lot of Linotype faces had been used. I worked on the Ludlow section at that time and it was very busy!
