Printing Shop

The printing shop created the town’s newspaper. Some of the items found in the shop included a printing press, typesetting machine or handset type and wooden type cases, printing paper, and supplies needed for making ink. In small communities, a newspaper might be printed once a week. Some of the articles in the local paper came from city newspapers.

The printing shop also printed advertisements and notices. Money to publish a paper came from the people who wanted advertisements or notices, from subscriptions, and from the sale of the newspaper.
