Photo Engraving Associates, Melbourne, Australia

Thanks to Don Hauser for allowing me to use this extract from his book "Printers of the Streets and Lanes of Melbourne" which he designed and typeset at his Nondescript Press. Unfortunately for us, but fortunately for Don, the original limited edition print run of 1,000 copies entirely sold out and the book is no longer for sale.
