- Recognize anyone? If you recognize specific folks (or other stuff) and I haven't labeled them, please identify them for the world. Click the little pencil icon underneath the file name (just above the picture). Spammers need not apply.
- Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Antique wood type, metal foundry type and engravings
Lloyd G. Shermer, 2006
Johann Gutenberg, a 15th-century German goldsmith, developed a new system of printing that revolutionized the spread of information through the mass production of books, newspapers and other printed materials. Before this breakthrough, most printing had been done by pressing hand-carved inked wood blocks against paper, a slow and laborious process. Gutenberg invented a process of casting individual pieces of metal type by pouring molten metal into molds, creating reusable letters that could be set into a frame for printing. He developed specialized oil-based inks and designed a new kind of printing press based on a wine press. The letterpress method of printing dominated the industry for hundreds of years until the advent of photographic typesetting and later, electronic typesetting.
As newspapers converted to modern methods of typesetting, the individual pieces of metal and wood-block type that had been used for centuries were rendered obsolete. Artist Lloyd G. Schermer, a former newspaper publisher, has rescued these and other materials used in letterpress printing to create one-of-a-kind works of art. This sculpture features a scale model of Gutenberg's printing press, wood-block letters, some of which were hand-carved, and metal type cast in molds in the fashion of those created by Gutenberg.

- Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
- Connection Not Secure messages? Those warnings you get from your browser about this site not having secure connections worry some people. This means this site does not have SSL installed (the link is http:, not https:). That's bad if you're entering credit card numbers, passwords, or other personal information. But this site doesn't collect any personal information so SSL is not necessary. Life's good!
