Following in the theme of stylised Linotypes, I found this glass window of a Linotype in the Zion Church in Baltimore, Maryland. Why a Linotype glass window in a church?

The church was founded by German Lutherans and honours a number of German immigrants who contributed to the development of arts and industry in the Baltimore area.



You can also take a virtual guided tour of the historic building.

If I recall, there is some kind of vocational high school in Baltimor named for the inventor of the Linotype. That's truly neat! Where do you find these things?

Yes Robert,

The Mergenthaler Vocational Technical High School in Baltimore, Maryland opened in 1952 and was nationally acclaimed as America's state-of-the-art vocational technical center. The center was the result of a merger among three vocational high schools that were built in the early 1900's (the Edison Vocational High School, the Barton Vocational High School and the Mergenthaler Vocational High School of Printing).

The above par is taken from the following web site.
