Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Thanks George, some very nice pictures there. Think this was my favourite, from 1921.

All the machines are driven from one central drive. Handy platform to walk along to fix disser stops.

Hi George
Nice photo of great interest.  This is of a old style model M/1 which is clearly identified as a M/1 by the transfer buffer tube on the front plate, as an old style by the twin belt driven keyboard.
I think this is a double letter machine manufactured somewhere around 1898/1899.

Keep up the good work.
