Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Here is an old 1901 model 5 Linotype, specifically manufactured or rebuilt by Mergenthaler for Societe Linotype Francaise Paris France. There are sub titles in French and English. You can see the name plate near the end at 4 min and 7 sec.  I was able to read the serial number 5880 it was originally made in 1901.
