1892 Johnson Horse Letterpress Printers Block
F1516

7 x 6 pica (1 1/8 x 1inch)

Electrotype copper face mounted on hardwood printers block.

Foundry Marking: Foundry stamp on one end from Johnson Type Foundry, actually MacKellar, Smiths and Jordan. They called the foundry "The Johnson Foundry" out of affection for the former owner, Larry Johnson. We are confident that this is much earlier than 1892, we have chosen to use the latest date of manufacture by the M.S.and J. foundry.
