Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Nice early pics of Linotypes posted on Flickr recently.

QuoteThis photograph shows the Linotype machines in the Composing Room of the Lewis Publishing Company in the Woman's Magazine Building. The photograph appeared in "The Papers of the People," a booklet promoting the Lewis Publishing Company, published in 1906.

Looks like some kind of canvas "flap" covering the distributor mechanism on the nearest machine!
