Says Tony: "Here is a photograph of me circa 1976 setting type on the C4-1 Intertype machine I operated for Califorms Printing Company in San Jose, California for 23 years.

It had a gas pot, pig fed, and the Intertype mechanical quadder. It was an excellent typesetting machine, and was retired in 1992.
