The Mysterious Hot Metal Comp Room.

i-mv7fxs6-xl1
An absolutely superlative image of the wonders and mystery of a hot metal print comp room.
I say mystery because anyone entering who was unfamiliar with the printing trade would stand in awe and stare.
They would then hear the strange language that these old codgers would be speaking.
Using terms that were alien and unknown and laughing as they spoke and only they understood this “gobbledegook”.
Ah! The Good Old Days!
