Linotype Wapiti (Elk)

Many thanks to Mike Wilson, a Metal Type regular, and a former Linotype operator from Bridlington, UK for sending in these photographs he took on a recent trip to Canada.

A local artist Carl Sean McMahon made a sculpture from an old Linotype machine for display outside the City Hall in Castlegar, British columbia, Canada.

Further information on the project can be found on the artist's website.

I have split the photographs over two pages:
Page One, Page Two.
