Anthracite Printing

Created by hww3. Last updated by hww3, 17 years ago. Version #1.

I recently purchased a number of items from Don Casey, who owned Anthracite Printing in Nanticoke PA until his retirement in March of 2004.

Some of the major items we rescued from the scrapper:

We didn't take the Intertype, which had been rebuilt in 1934. The pot had some cracks in it, and we didn't feel like we would be able to move it in the time we had left. We also didn't take a cast iron machinist's table. I'm kinda kicking myself for that one.

What's interesting about the presses in particular is that the economics of the region in the 1960s made it more cost effective to pay someone to hand feed a press than to buy a feeder.
