Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type



The Milldean Press is interesting as they specialise in printing railway tickets. The web pages are a little difficult to read as it looks like it is a past-up on corrugated card. The two gallery photos are too large for the web page and are better viewed at 75%. There is a link to "Dave Hughes Linotypes" but when you click on it you are sent, There are two photos on the site. I have posted one.

QuoteThe Milldean Press was started in 1961 as a "cottage industry" to print simple and short runs for railfan and museum groups by printing from home in Hawthorn using an American Perfected Prowty Hand-Fed Platen press.

George, I offer the suggestion that the background pattern is that typical of many garage type roller doors - at least a style often found in Oz.

Geoff Dean - the principal of Milldean - was possibly inspired by the appearance of the main door to the new building which would enable relatively easy installation of the heavy metal of ticket production
