Line ’em Up

Line 'em Up

 

This old lining machine was used to print lines on paper;  each length of string carried ink which was transferred to paper.  The paper was run through in one direction for horizontal lines, then turned 90 degrees and run through again for vertical lines.  Used to print ledgers.

    Fascinating. I never would have guessed that was how a ledger paper was produced. Also interesting is the beauty of the woodwork and metalwork of the machine itself.
