Print London at the Fanshawe Pioneer Village

We took a guided tour of the historic “Free Press” print shop at Fanshawe Pioneer Village. Resident printer Doug Teeter demonstrated the process of printing a newsletter using original tools and techniques dating back to the 1850s. Somethings have changed a lot and others really haven’t!

It's amazing to see where so many of the fonts and terms I know from Microsoft Word originated!
