Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Some interesting photos from the Toronto Star.
I converted the Star's first Linotype to TTS back in the early 1960's.
The ITU was not happy and banned the conversion of any more machines.
As a member of the ITU I was stopped from converting any more machines. Non union mechanics were employed to do the job.
The Star installed an IBM 360 to justify the paper tape. This lead to a city wide newspaper strike that never ended. .
