Thanks to John S Smith, a retired Linotype operator, for sending in these pictures taken at the Daily Telegraph just before the demise of hot metal.

Or in John's own words: "These photos were taken just before the demise of the best club in the world, Fleet Street."

John's photographs are spread over two pages: Page One, Page Two.
