John Jarrold Printing Museum

Many thanks to Flickr user Gridula for allowing these photographs that he took at the John Jarrold Printing Museum, in Norwich, Norfolk, UK to be used on Metal Type.

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

Says Gridula: "An absolutely stunning example of a smaller Soldan Lightning Proof Press. I didn't even know this was in the museum so when I walked round the corner and saw this I nearly fell over.

The guys who volunteer at the museum didn't know it was a Soldan - they just new it as "Noreen's Press" as Noreen donated it to the museum.
