Printing Press - Addressograph-Multigraph, Multilith Offset, Post 1945 Reg. No: HT 15168
- Lithographic printing press - Small Offset
The machine was manufactured by the Addressograph Multigraph Corporation but the date of manufacture is unknown.
Operation was by the automatic feeding of sheets. Printing was by a photoengraved zinc plate, an example of which can be seen on the press and which carries the name of Triangle Press and appears to be a Xmas wrapper utilized by the business.
There are two electric motors in the machine. The first motor drove the machine and the second motor drove the pump, which provided air to the feeder.
