Linotype: the Dardanup Heritage Print Shop

Dardanup Heritage Print Shop is located in Dardanup, Western Australia. 

Laurie and Ian display and operate vintage printing equipment at the Dardanup Heritage Park Print Shop; from handset type to Linotype, Ludlow, platen and Heidelberg skills. Their darling model 48 Linotype (operated by Laurie who has been in the printing trade since he was 13) is believed to be the only working model of it’s type in Western Australia. For the use, working knowledge and repair of these printing machines, 
such places as the Print Shop are invaluable. 

You can see the machines in action, ask questions and learn more in person, 
or online via Facebook.
