Back in the day when type was hot

I agree with Julie Starr; these old newspaper videos from the 1950s are great. She has some others on in her blog post. Give them a look.

Somehow I don’t believe the “push this button” system we have today would make as interesting a video. Fifty years from now, however, printed newspapers themselves will seem as quaint and foreign as the production processes show here.

Do you realize, they printed pages of paper and delivered them, mind you, in the wee hours of the morning to your home. Can you imagine?
