Life in a 19th-Century Village
These look great! As I type this on my computer, I can only imagine how much work would go into setting the type for one of these ads, much less a newspaper or a book! Amazing!
Please see our post on our printing press for a good idea of how long it took to set something longer than an ad! The rules for the Romulus Female Seminary took our printer 12-16 hours to do! http://gcvmblog.blogspot.com/2010/05/19th-century-printing-press-in-village.html
